Everyone thinks Manchester United have gotten boring under Van Gaal, but Slaven Bilic will not support that claim.
Supporters have asked that the team attack, despite being one point behind joint leaders, City and Leicester.
And Bilic who ft ace United on the weekend, thinks they’re still a major threat.
“They are winning and not conceding goals,” he pointed out.
“Somebody said they are boring, but I’m not sure why people are saying this.
“They’re keeping the ball, they are not a team who give you the ball and defend – you can say that this kind of football is sometimes boring.
“However, they have possession of the ball, they are controlling the game and they are trying to win every game.”
The Croatian coach admits, though, that the current United side is not as quick or electric as they were under Sir Alex Ferguson.
“You can say that United are different from before, especially at home where opponents are now defending with numbers behind the ball, very compact and very deeply,” he added.
“With this being the case, they can’t play more direct or at a higher tempo because for this you need gaps and space behind or in between the lines of the opponent which are difficult to find.
“They’re different from the Alex Ferguson era where they were quicker, more electric and bombarding the box.”
