Van Gaal calls for United’s immediate revival post Bournemouth loss

Johannesburg: Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has insisted that his side must make immediate amendments after suffering a shocking 2-1 loss to Bournemouth if they are to harbour any hopes of claiming the Premier League title.

The Dutchman came under severe scrutiny as the Old Trafford club extended their winless streak to five after Saturday’s loss, which also includes early exit from the Champions League.

Van Gaal stressed that United must win all three of the upcoming games to remain among the leading group going into the new year, Sport24 reported.

He said that although they were in a very difficult position, they have the selection to challenge for the title.

United will next take on Norwich City before facing Stoke City and a home meeting with Chelsea before the end of December. (ANI)
