My Target For Manchester United Is Making Top Four – Van Gaal

Louis van Gaal has set Manchester United an initial target
of a top-four finish in this season’s Premier League.
United’s new manager is yet to deliver a competitive
victory and suffered the indignity of a 4-0 defeat at
League One MK Dons in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup tie.
Neither that setback, nor a return of just one Premier
League point from two games, has dented the Dutchman’s
confidence and he remains convinced he can bring a new
era of domestic and European success to Old Trafford.
Van Gaal is even refusing to rule out a title challenge this
season, but ahead of Saturday’s trip to Burnley he has
again stressed it will take time to rebuild United’s squad
and successfully implement his methods.
He said:
“Before September 1, I have given every player a
reasonable chance – it would not have been good to
come as a new manager and say ‘I want 11 new
players’.
The process needs time and we are building up a new
team. “I hope we shall succeed and that we are this
year in the top four, because the Champions League
suits a club like Manchester United.
“Then maybe the next step is to be champions and the
next step after that is to be winner of the Champions
League, but that needs time. A lot of clubs fight for
many, many years and never succeed.
“We can still be the champions of England in my first
year. Maybe you will laugh but in my former clubs I
have started like this so for me it is not big news.”
Van Gaal reminded the press of the positive reports
which accompanied United’s successful pre-season tour
of the United States, where Roma, Real Madrid and
Liverpool were all defeated.
He said:
“I was a king in the United States, and now I am not a
king any more? I am the same Louis van Gaal with the
same record and the same philosophy, and I am very
confident I shall succeed here.”

[Must Read] My Experience With SARS Operatives In Ibadan. [Another SOKA In The Making]

Most of the times we take TOKUNBO CARS to Abuja
from Lagos for sale. Three days ago, we sent some of our
guys to deliver two cars to buyers in Abuja.
I was going to call these guys to find out where they were
but their phones were not reachable for the whole day! I
was worried and began to make contacts.
Thank God they have been able to reach an uncle before
they collected all their phones and the uncle had also
reached a lawyer.
These guys were arrested for no offense, they had all the
papers intact! Unknown to the police men, the cars were
more than two.
The third guy who had driven past the police men had
called some people and later turned back.
He was also arrested and they collected his phone
immediately, not knowing he had contacted people.
They were all taken to SARS police station somewhere in
Dugbe.
We were able to trace them to the station, on getting there,
we saw hell! They were furious and began to ask questions
on how we got there.
The shouted, ”who called you, who called you”? To cut
the long story short, we were able to take out our guys after
parting with 80, 000 NGN.
The guys narrated their experience in the cell, many cell
occupants who have been there for days without anyone
looking for them are being killed and sold.
They said the boss usually come with people at night,
point to two or three occupants an they would be driven
away without being returned.
Our government needs to investigate this and take
necessary action to avoid another ‘civilized’ SOKA
