I Prefer Trophies To Top-Four Spot- Louis Van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes winning the Europa League or the FA Cup is more important than finishing in the top four of the Premier League for his team. United currently sit fifth in the table, while they are through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and the last 16 of the Europa League where they will face West Ham and Liverpool respectively.

Finishing in the top four will secure Champions League football for United next season, but this can also be achieved by winning the Europa League and Van Gaal feels winning silverware should always be the priority. He said “The target is winning the Europa League and of course Manchester United have not won the Europa League. It should be fantastic for Manchester United and the fans when you win a title but also the last time they won the FA Cup was many, many years ago so that would also be fantastic. A title is always worth more than fourth position but the Champions League is our aim, so that is why the Europa League is very important or the fourth position in the table”.

United's form is improving, with the team winning their last four games but Van Gaal acknowledged his side have a long way to go if they are to achieve their objectives for the season. When asked about United's upturn in form, Van Gaal said: “I don't think there is any change. When you see we have closed the gap a little bit, your belief shall raise. I tell my players they first have to believe in it. I believe but the most important thing is that the players believe. Still, we have to beat West Brom and that is not easy”.
