Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United fans should be happy with his side's return to winning ways despite scraping through to the fourth round of the FA Cup.
After a run of eight matches without victory, United have recorded back-to-back wins against Swansea and Sheffield United, although they were made to work hard for their victory against the League One side.
Some fans booed the team off at half-time of their FA Cup third round win, while thousands had already left Old Trafford by the time Wayne Rooney scored from the penalty spot in the 93rd minute.
When asked why fans left the ground earlier, Van Gaal suggested traffic was to blame before claiming supporters should be happy with the way the club has bounced back.
"You have to be happy as a Manchester United fan that we are in next round and we have won the last two games," Van Gaal said.
"They are not thinking that we would score, I think, and maybe also because of the traffic that they leave the stadium a few minutes early. "There are many reasons. "I think the fans have supported our team. It is not an easy time now, so I think the fans were there also.
"How many stadiums were like our stadium, full, I think?
"You can mention how they leave, but you can also mention how they come to the stadium to watch this FA Cup match."
