No Trophy For Manchester United This Season - Van Gaal

Van Gaal is not aiming for the title just yet with United
Louis van Gaal has dismissed Manchester United's chances of winning the Premier League just four games into the new season.
United have taken seven points and scored just three goals during their stuttering start to the domestic campaign, fuelling concerns over the team's attack.
At a fan event held at Old Trafford cricket ground on Wednesday night, Van Gaal told assembled Reds he expected the team to finish second or third this season, but compete in all three cup competitions, leaving him with one campaign to give supporters a title before he retires.
Since their breakthrough championship in 1993, the longest title drought United have experienced were the four years between their tussle with Arsenal in 2003 and triumph over Chelsea in 2007.
Van Gaal also reiterated his assistant, Ryan Giggs, will succeed him as United manager once he retires in 2017.

The Dutchman said in April he 'expected' Giggs to take over but stressed to the 900 fans in attendance that United's most decorated player was their next manager - 'no ifs or buts'.

On an evening reports emerged that a delegation of United players had confronted Van Gaal over his training regime, the United manager and Giggs held court at Lancashire's ground, with one fan describing Van Gaal, who vowed United would beat Liverpool on Saturday, as a 'total showman'.

Van Gaal heaped further praise on England's record-breaker Wayne Rooney, just 17 goals shy of surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton as United's all-time leading goalscorer, and described him as the best captain he has ever coached.

Rooney was mentioned, along with former Ajax and Barcelona midfielder Ronald de Boer, Portuguese legend Luis Figo, Bayern Munich icon Philipp Lahm and United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, as the five best players Van Gaal has worked with.
During the hour-long discussion, the United boss tipped Andreas Pereira to fill the void left temporarily by Adnan Januzaj, who joined Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan in the transfer window, having performed ebulliently on the club's pre-season tour.

Brazilian Pereira, 19, enjoyed an excellent half against Club America, scored versus San Jose Earthquakes and was influential in United's 3-1 win over Barcelona in the States.
Pereira made two substitute appearances under Van Gaal last season and was named in the matchday squad for the opening day win over Tottenham.

Van Gaal also confirmed teenage striker James Wilson has been sent out on loan to a Championship club, believed to be Derby, with an option to recall him. Wilson's departures leaves United with just three strikers in Wayne Rooney, Marouane Fellaini and £36m Anthony Martial.
