Man Utd silence does not worry Van Gaal

Louis van Gaal

Louis van Gaal guided United to fourth place in his first season in charge

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he has no problem with the club’s failure to back him publicly.

United made no comment after club officials held talks with ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s representatives, although no agreement was reached.

United are out of the Champions League and face a fight to make the top four.

“I don’t agree,” he said, when asked if United’s silence was unsettling. “You don’t have to answer invented stories. I agree with this policy of the club.”

United are currently fifth in the Premier League table, six points adrift of Manchester City in fourth.

They face second-from-bottom Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday lunchtime.
