Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is optimistic of the club’s chances in the English Premier League in the coming weeks.
“The coming matches are very decisive,” the Dutchman said.
“We are so close to a lot of clubs. We can be second or third. It is not a big difference, I believe.
“Manchester United have to be one of the teams who have to play in the Champions League.”
“We have the confidence to reach the goal we set at the beginning of the season,” he added.
“I have a lot of confidence in my players. From what I see in training sessions, we have progressed. But there is a big difference between training sessions and matches.
“We have to wait for the big victory. Then, maybe, we shall have more spirit and also more confidence to win our games.”
