Manchester United will only become a true ‘Louis van Gaal’ team next season and not before, according to the man himself.

Speaking after Sunday’s 0-0 draw against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, Van Gaal was asked when Manchester United will begin to start performing like the teams he has coached in the past.

And the veteran Dutch coach responded by saying: “Next season”.

Van Gaal impressed with first-half display

Van Gaal said that United lacked a bit of good fortune during the stalemate, but produced their best half of football this season in the opening 45 minutes.

This despite the fact Van Gaal again bemoaned the fact today’s fixture came less than 48 hours after Manchester United’s 3-1 victory over Newcastle United on Boxing Day.

Van Gaal: It was a struggle for life

About the second half, Van Gaal quipped: “It was not football anymore, it was a struggle for life.”

He added that it has been scientifically proved that the body is not capable of recovering within 48 hours.

The United boss concluded by conceding it will be very difficult for the Red Devils to finish the season as Premier League champions - although he refused to concede the title to either Manchester City or Chelsea at the premature stage in the campaign.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, said the 0-0 draw was a fair result for both sides.
