I wonder how the Red Devils Nation will take this revelation. Van Gaal has revealed that the EPL will not come to Old Trafford this season, but vows to beat Liverpool.
Manchester United have taken seven points from four EPL matches, despite spending over Â£100 million over the summer in bringing Martial, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger and Depay.
Despite the additions to the squad, Van Gaal is pessimistic and doesn’t see United winning the EPL.
“No, maybe third or second place is realistic but I expect us to go for it next season,” he said when asked whether United would win the title at a Q&A session for season ticket holders.
He added on their defeat to Swansea City last time out: “I am sorry, the defeat, was my fault. Don’t worry, we will win on Saturday [against Liverpool].”
