Van Gaal Not Happy With A Point

Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal, says the 0-0 draw with Burnley on Saturday was a disappointing result and believes they need to raise their confidence.
 
United remain winless in their opening three league encounters after the draw at Turf Moor and the Ducthman believes some players were nervous to play the ball.
 
“We played much better in the second half and created more chances,” Van Gaal told MUTV.
 
“But you have to score from those chances, and we didn’t do that. It’s a disappointing result.
 
“It was our mistake to fight with Burnley, even though they have fantastic fighting spirit. You have to play with the ball against teams like Burnley.
 
“I don’t think our confidence level was very high in the first half. But I think that’s normal when a club like United loses the first match and draws the second one.
 
“The pressure is higher and you have to cope with that. I could see in the first half that the players were very nervous to play the ball. We restored that in the second half, and maybe that will raise our confidence.”
