Manchester United fans must have faith in LVG



Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has pleaded with the United faithful to have more patience with Dutch manager Louis van Gaal saying that he will bring success to the club.

The German World Cup winner was eager to remind fans that the 64-year-old manager brought trophies to both Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and that he will do the same thing at Old Trafford if the fans give him the time to build his team.

Speaking about the Red Devils manager Schweinsteiger said: “I recognise similarities between Louis van Gaal here and at Bayern Munich.

“In Munich if you remember it took a while before the team understood exactly how he wants to play football.

“But in the end we won the Bundesliga title and made it to the Champions League final.

“You have to be patient. But of course during that you have to win, you have to get results and you have to score. I think we are in a good way. We can improve. But the team spirit here is great.

“It is not about October or November it is about May.

“I remember the fans were unsure about him early on at Bayern but in the end we did the double and so the fans in Munich loved him.

“I am sure Louis will bring success to United. I am convinced about that but we have to do our work and we have to improve. I am convinced it will happen.”
