Louis van Gaal has no doubt he is the right man to lead Manchester United to silverware despite the club's early exit from the Champions League.
United will have the Europa League to focus on when European football returns in February after failing to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Critics have rounded on Van Gaal following his club's exit, but the Dutcham is confident United will win trophies under him and he has no doubt in his abilities to lead the club.
"I don’t have any doubts," he told reporters when asked if he had any doubts about his ability to deliver trophies.
"You can lose and you can win in sport - you have to accept that. As a manager, you have to work very hard and I am working very hard, as are my players. The problem is that we have to meet with the expectations and at a club like this, they are very high."
There are fears the Europa League could have a negative impact on United's Premier League challenge and Van Gaal knows it will be tricky to target both competitions.
"We are now in the Europa League so now we have to win it. That is not easy. I can say that in advance but nobody hears me. They don't want to hear me because a club like United has to win," he added.
"This club has to win I know that. But you have to analyse the club now to where it was ten years ago. There has been an evolution in European football since then and you can make your own opinions about it."
