Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal seems to have given up on his side’s chances of a strong finish in the ongoing Barclays Premier League campaign.
Manchester United have not won in eight games, including their past six in the Premier League and have dropped to sixth place, and are out of the Champions League.
Manchester United will on Saturday face Swansea, a team Van Gaal has lost to in all three meetings since taking charge and the Dutchman says there is no magic formula to turning around the club’s fortunes.
“There is no magic, it is looking at what has happened and what can improve, as a team and individually.
“I have lost three times against Swansea, and then you have to evaluate why you lost. It is always like that, then you continue with the same vicious circle of working.
“You make a game plan to beat your opponent and then you have to convince your players. Then you have to train and then you have to be convinced. Then you can be committed and try to perform it.” The manchester United boss said as quoted on BBC Sport.
The Reds drew 0-0 with Chelsea on Monday with a much-improved performance following a Boxing Day defeat at Stoke that had led to speculation the Dutchman would be sacked if they lost again.
