Smart move by Van Gaal? The United manager has tagged the fans at the club, the best he has seen in his career.
Van Gaal took United to the champions league when he took over in 2014-15 season.
But has now crashed out of the league, with United sitting sixth and currently on a six game winless streak.
Despite frustrations from sections of the Old Trafford support over United’s apparent lack of attacking intent, Van Gaal praised the United faithful for how they have got behind the team despite a woeful recent run.
“I have had problems with other clubs that I managed, but I have to say the best fans are the Manchester United ones,” he said.
“In a difficult situation they continue to applaud the footballers and that is simply fantastic.”
United will be looking to end their winless run when they host Swansea City on Saturday.
