Louis van Gaal gives his theory on why Manchester United are playing more ‘freely’ lately (Video)

here’s a visible pep in Louis van Gal’s step of late.

And why wouldn’t there be?

Having spent the past 2 months under constant speculation over his future, his Manchester United side are suddenly winning games – and playing well, which has taken the heat off his back.

And which has also led to the question: Why now? Has the Dutchman let the shackles off and allowed them to express themselves more?

Not quite.

According to Van Gaal, the reason they’re playing more fluidly of late is simply because confidence is higher after producing some decent results.
