The Dutchman is under pressure at Man Utd but he still knows what he needs to improve his team.

Louis van Gaal says he needs more ‘fast’ and ‘creative’ players in his Manchester Unitedteam.

The Dutchman has seen both Jose Mourinho and Ryan Giggs linked with his job during a season where United have been knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage and struggle to get back in the Premier League’s top four.

But it’s not stopped the 64-year-old, who has a contract until 2017, outlining the type of player he wants to bring to Old Trafford this summer.

Van Gaal said: “I have said a lot of times that we need more creative players, more fast players and more quick-thinking players because the lower teams are mostly parking the bus, as the Englishmen say.

“That makes things more difficult as the top teams want to play against us which means that we can play which makes a big difference.”
