Louis Van Gaal has revealed he could leave managing after United, but has not cited the pressure he is under as a reason.
A run of eight matches without a win, has piled immense pressure on Van Gaal, with United now sixth on the table. The draw against Chelsea snapped a four game losing streak.
And while Van Gaal was not talking about his pressure, he was talking about the job being his last.
“I’m always doing my work. You have to do what you have to do,” the 64-year-old told reporters.
“There are members of my staff who are coming to me and saying ‘boss, how can I help you more or in another way?’ I say ‘you are helping me by doing the things you have to do and as well as possible’. Then I am satisfied.
“I expect that also from my players, to do the same things. This is not my first club. It may be the last club as I have said, but it is not the first club where I have had a bad period.”
Asked if the pressure on him is easing, Van Gaal added: “I don’t know because the pressure is also what you experience by yourself and also by the players because they have to perform in a certain time.
“They have to give everything and that’s the most difficult aspect of players’ function.
“In 90 minutes you have to show it and against the resistance of the opponent, under the pressure of the environment but also under the pressure that you put on yourself.
“You have to cope with that. The way we played under that pressure in the style we want to play [against Chelsea], that was fantastic.”
