Van Gaal worried by lack of confidence

Manchester-United-v-NorwichLouis Van Gaal has blamed a lack of confidence for his side’s dismal results over the last couple of weeks.

Having lost 2-1 to Bournemouth last week, United were condemned to defeat by the same scoreline against another newly promoted side, Norwich City, on Saturday.

The result means United have now slipped outside the top four and the former Holland manager admitted the lack of belief within the ranks was alarming.

“I can only say what you have seen today is what a lack of confidence can do to your team,” said Van Gaal.

“It was not good enough and although it is our first league defeat at home it is also confirmation that we are in a very bad period and we have to come out of that.

“That’s difficult otherwise we would have done it today. You have to win against Norwich and win every home match and we have done that until today.

“The problem is how we manage to come out of this bad period. It can be done when you are sticking together not only players, manager and staff but also fans because that is very important.”

  1. Van Gaal has destroyed any confidence that was in the squad.The suggestion that Mourinho replace him (somebody must)is horrifying to me.Mourinhos style of football is as bad as that of Van Gaal.But he is also a man of low moral fibre.He is not a sportsman and is in fact a cheat too fond of the dark arts to be considered for the job Mourinho will bring the club into disrepute by his behaviour,it is only a matter of time with this ego maniac.Sack LVG and give Giggs the job at least until the end of the season.
