Van Gaal: We Need To Be More Ruthless

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was not satisfied with his side's performance, despite beating Aston Villa 1-0 on Saturday.
 
 
The Red Devils scored in the 31st minute thanks to Marcus Rashford who found the back of the net from Antonio Valencia's cross. 
 
However, Van Gaal feels his side should have put Villa away earlier, instead of risking a late equaliser.
 
"I was not so pleased with the performance because I think we played too slowly," Van Gaal told Sky Sports.
 
"I know it is difficult against a defensively organised team like Aston Villa - they were very compact - but then you need quick possession play and the gaps will exist. We could not do that today.
 
"I was happy with the first goal - an important goal. It was a very good switch by Wayne Rooney and a very good assist from Antonio Valencia. He saw Marcus running to the near post and, at the right time, gave the pass. It was superb.
 
"But we have to finish much earlier and then the game will be over and Aston Villa would not show the same motivation at the end, because they were still in the race for a draw."
 
 
Do you think Man Utd should be scoring a handful against teams like Villa? Have your say in the comments section below.
