Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj insists he is happy at the club and has 'no issue' with how Louis van Gaal has worked with him.

The young Belgian struggled for opportunities last season under the new manager, featuring 21 times in all competitions. However, the majority of those appearances were off the bench.

Januzaj produced the only goal in his first start of the season on Friday night against Aston Villa, and he's already put last season to the back of his mind as he looks to make an impact once again.

"I’d not played for a long time, so I was happy to score my first goal of the season [against Villa]. I’m happy to play and give everything for the manager and the club," he said, according to the official Manchester United website.

"Last year was last year, and this year is this year. I’m happy at United and I’m happy with the way the manager has worked with me, so I don’t have any issues with that."

The 20-year-old went on to reveal that he's had talks with Van Gaal about how to improve his game and is hoping to continue making an impression on the Dutchman.

Januzaj is under no illusions that it could be another season spent mainly on the bench but he's ready to do his very best for the team and hoping for more opportunities as the campaign moves on.

"It can happen, but this year is another year so I’m ready to get back to my best and do everything that I can do," he added.

"Of course [I’m improving]; the manager has spoken to me a few times and I felt that I haven’t been myself but I hadn’t had many games, so hopefully I can play more this year."

Januzaj was speaking alongside Van Gaal during the pre-match Champions League press conference, with the Red Devils hosting Club Brugge in the first leg of their qualifier tonight.
