With the Premier League club
struggling for goals, the
Dutchman has once again
called for reinforcements to his
wide attacking
options Manchester United
manager Louis van Gaal has
once again underlined his
desire to add more pace and
creativity to his forward line.

The Red Devils have come
under fire for scoring just
twice in their last four games in
all competitions and supporters
at Old Trafford have become
increasingly frustrated with the
style of football on offer in
recent weeks.

Having allowed Angel Di Maria
to depart for Paris Saint-
Germain before the start of the
season and losing out to
Chelsea in a pursuit of Pedro,
Van Gaal previously admitted
that United are lacking quality
out wide.
And the former Netherlands
boss has hinted at possible
transfer activity by again calling
for reinforcements in those
positions.

“We have to score more goals, I
agree with that, but only one
more than the opponent,” he
said.

“That’s what I am thinking.
And, of course, we still need
players with more creativity
and pace on the wings.

“That I have said five months
ago, three months ago and
now I am saying it again, but
we need that, so we are still in
a process.”

United play West Brom in the
Premier League on Saturday
and Van Gaal accepts that
expectations are high at the
club and has challenged his
players to cope with the
pressure of sustaining a title
challenge this season.

“I think when you play for
Manchester United you believe
that you have to be top of the
league,” he added.

“That’s the culture of the club
also. All the players who are
coming here feel that but it is
also a pressure. You have to
cope with that pressure.

“But, of course, when I came
here we were seventh and last
year we were very close. And
also, this year we are closer
than last year.

“We still have to play a lot of
matches, but we have much
more points, we are more
stable, we are having less goals
against us than last season.”
