The 63-year-old recently revealed: “This is my last job. For sure. I have to pay attention to my kids, my grandchildren but also to my wife. They deserve it. Now I cannot pay that attention. I was not at the birthday of my grandson for example. I don’t like it.
United have been in fine form in recent weeks, and Van Gaal believes his United squad is finally taking to his methods. While the Dutchman remains intent on securing a top four finish, he also feels that they can go even further.
He added: “When I drive my car for the first time in England it is the same, I have to think about the left and the right.
“That we have seen with United. Against Spurs you have seen that. That shows they can do things together as a team. That takes time. In Germany (at Bayern), it took until December. And now until March (with United).”
“That’s our goal (to finish in the top four), yes, and it depends on how we end this season. We have to qualify for the Champions League and we have many tests next year. That also develops the level of your team, and of course how many players can come in to improve our selection.”
The Red Devils can take a huge stride towards the top four if they beat Liverpool this weekend.
