It seems Van Gaal is not ready to slow down. As he has cited table leaders, City as the next team to beat.
Van Gaal has heaped praise on his men for starting the new season on a high note following their 3-1 dismissal of Liverpool.
United are currently second on the table and despite being full of praise for his men, Van Gaal admits they need to improve in some aspects.
“We have qualified [for the Uefa Champions League], we have 10 points out of five matches and I think that is a good record – there is only one club better,” said the 64-year-old at his post-match press conference.
“Our aim is to be the best. Now we are five points behind Manchester City so we still look to that position, but I am happy.
“In a difficult period like we had in the transfer period with a lot of problems with players coming and going then I think we have managed it very well.”
