Considering Louis van Gaal had just watched his Manchester United side exit the Champions League with a limp display at Wolfsburg, the Dutch coach was pretty feisty in his assessment after the match.
LVG, for once this season, had cause to be angry with his defence: “If you give within two minutes, two times a goal away after you have scored, yeah that is difficult to understand when you defend so well normally.”
The Manchester United boss also denied that United were playing in an easy group, against Wolfsburg, PSV and CSKA Moscow: “You have to listen I think, yes. Okay? Thank you. I have said already that this was a tight group, so I am not agreeing with your opinion that it was an easy group.”
Finally, LVG discussed with the media, what he told his players: “No, I think that is a matter of time because this year it cannot be. I have said also to the players, ‘Now it’s over in the Champions League. You cannot show your qualities anymore in the Champions League.’ That’s the highest podium and we want to do that, but we will have to wait till next year.”
