Only a 90th minute Wayne Rooney penalty on Saturday night saved the Premier League club’s blushes against Sheffield United in the FA Cup, and fans ironically cheered when Van Gaal’s side registered their first shot on target after 65 minutes.

Responding to the criticism during his weekly press conference, Van Gaal said, “There are matches that I’ve enjoyed very much,”

“But there are also matches where I’m very bored or angry, because we are not disorganising our opponent’s defence.

“But that’s football.

“It’s not every match that every club is playing fantastically, with football that attracts the people.

“But that is also why the fans are coming. They can criticise, but they can also cheer the players.”

Manchester United travel to struggling Newcastle United on Tuesday.
