Van Gaal Won’t Let Leicester City Win League At Old Trafford – Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has no plans to let Leicester City win the league at Old Trafford.
The Foxes face United on Sunday, with Leicester City needed just 3 points to guarantee the league title. United, with time running out on them, are chasing a Champions League spot, and Van Gaal believes they have to win Leicester City if they really want to make the UCL.
“We have to close the gap so the pressure is on us still. We have to win every game that we have to play. City still have to play against Arsenal, though, so one of those shall lose points,” he told reporters.
“I think we have to beat Leicester because we are still in the race for the first positions so we have to beat them. We cannot allow that they are the champions this weekend at Old Trafford.
“I think they will be the champions a week later, so we don’t spoil the party, just postpone it a little bit. It is good for the Premier League and the sport of football that not always the same teams are the champion.
“We are fighting for the qualification to the Champions League and we are still in the FA Cup, so we have to fight for something and we shall do it. Hopefully, we can beat Leicester City.”
