Utd boss Louis van Gaal targets League title

London- Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says his ambition is to bring the Premier League title back to Old Trafford.

United thrashed promoted QPR 4-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday to give the Dutchman his first win since taking over in the summer.

“I want to win the Premier League title,” he said.
“If it is not this year, then the second or third year. I want to give a championship to the fans.”

Van Gaal, who won domestic titles in his first seasons in charge of both Barcelona and Bayern Munich, has been set a target of a top-three finish by chief executive Ed Woodward.

After scoring only twice in their first four games under Van Gaal, Man United produced a much-improved display against QPR.

The victory featured Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera’s first goals for the club, while Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata also scored.

Di Maria had a hand in three goals as well as getting on the scoresheet, although he was not immune from criticism from Van Gaal, who believes there is more to come from his side. “When you have a result of 4-0, then you can be happy as a coach, but you always have points you can improve,” he said.

“We have always to analyse what we have done. The result is fantastic but we can get much better.

“I said [before the match] ‘let’s make a new start today’.”
On Di Maria, Van Gaal added: “When you prepare three goals and make the first goal by yourself then you cannot play bad, but he had a lot of unnecessary losses so we can do better.”
