‘Louis van Gaal won’t get three years to get things right at Man United’

Gordon McQueen feels that Louis van Gaal is already under pressure to deliver at Manchester United

Gordon McQueen insists that it is unlikely Louis van Gaal would be given three years to bring success to Manchester United.

The Dutchman said on Friday that the “process” the club is undergoing would take a number of seasons following his appointment in the summer.

But United legend McQueen feels that the former Barcelona boss will have to start delivering results sooner rather than later.

His predecessor David Moyes didn’t get three years, so why should he?

“There is no chance that Van Gaal will get three years to turn round the club,” McQueen told Goal. “He’s made a big mistake there and I’m surprised he said it.

“He already lives and breathes United so must know that is never going to happen. Perhaps he has already realised it’s a tougher job than he first feared.

“His predecessor David Moyes didn’t get three years, so why should he?

“He will get longer than Moyes because his CV is more impressive and he has proved he can do it a big clubs, but expectancy levels at United are still high and he has to show major progress this season.

“A top-four finish is a prerequisite, particularly after the club being out of the Champions League this season. As it stands, there are no guarantees on that score.”

Will Man United finish in the top four?
