Champions League: Van Gaal Concerned About Manchester United Future

Six matches in 18 days have taken its toll on Dutchman Louis van Gaal’s men.

Six matches in 18 days have taken its toll on Dutchman Louis van Gaal‘s men. Manchester United managed to edge past Wolfsburg 2-1 in their last Champions League encounter, but head-coach van Gaal’s concern over the tough schedule remains undiminished.

“A lot of players are very tired because of the accumulation of a lot of matches,” said van Gaal.

The Red Devils rode on Juan Mata‘s penalty and Chris Smalling’s 53rd minute strike to overcome the German team’s challenge in their group B encounter. United will be visiting Arsenal on Sunday for the crunch Premier League encounter. Daniel Caligiuri scored for Wolfsburg in the 4th minute.

The Old Trafford outfit lost their first match at PSV Eindhoven.

“We have everything in our own hands and that is very important,” said van Gaal.

“We score but after that it was suffering,” he added.

“Arsenal played yesterday – one day more to recover. That will benefit them but we shall manage it.”

Van Gaal also pointed at the “rat race” of the English Premier League as one of the reasons barring his side’s future prospects in the Champions League.

“We have a rat race that is not always the same in other countries,” he said. “We also have to play over Christmas.”
