Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal wants to win the FA cup with the club after making it to the fifth round.

A 3-1 win over Derby County, with goals from Rooney, Blind and Mata sent the Red devils to the next round.

And Van Gaal wants to win the trophy, United last won in 2004.

“The Premier League is very important, but the FA Cup is the greatest cup in England with a long and important history,” he told BBC Sport.

“We have not won it for a long time so we dream of it, but after two wins you can’t say that we will win it.

“It [the performance] was maybe better than we had trained. We played at the right time against the resistance of Derby.

“We gave their goal away, but at half-time I said that it was a good performance, keep it up and we will win – and we did.”

The goal from centre-back Blind with 25 minutes remaining restored United’s lead after George Thorne had struck for Derby in the first half and Van Gaal praised his player’s desire.

“Blind’s goal? You have to sniff it and he sniffed it,” said the manager. “It was a great goal.”
