Van Gaal sees title-winning results this year

Man Utd playing like champions according to boss

Louis Van Gaal believes that Manchester United have had title-winning results this year and that if it was the same over the course of the whole season they would be champions.

The Old Trafford club outfit recovered from a disastrous November and December to lose just once in eight games in 2016 although they remain six points off the final Champions League place.

However, Van Gaal feels if they keep their current form, a surge of the table is possible.

“When you see our results in 2016, when we have that over the whole season we are the champions,” he said. “But we have to show it every week now because of the fact that the gap is so big."

The Dutchman also denied that the club were trying to replace him with Jose Mourinho.

“I shall be disappointed (if contact has been made with the Portuguese),” Van Gaal continued. “Because that is the consequence of what I have said. In a football world that is possible, I know, but I do not think that.

“I have a relationship with Ed (Woodward) and the Glazers, they (would) tell me I think.”
