Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal admits he and his team deserved to be booed by fans after the 1-0 defeat to Southampton at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Manchester United who are fifth in the Premier League, five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and 10 off leaders Leicester failed to score a first-half goal for the 11th home game in a row, before Charlie Austin got the winner for the Saints in the 87th minute.
Reacting to the fans’ gesture after the encounter, the former Bayern Munich manager said;
“They are right to boo. I cannot deny that, I saw the match,” said Van Gaal.
“For better or for worse we have to stick together,” added the Dutchman after his side’s six league defeat of the season.
“We are working very hard, but we have had a lot of injuries. That you cannot change.” Van Gaal said as quoted on BBC Sports.
United have taken 37 points from their first 23 games, their lowest total in the Premier League era and three points fewer than under David Moyes during the 2013/14 season.
