FA CUP : Preston v Manchester United – MANAGER QUOTES

Louis van Gaal


Paul Grayson, Preston: “[on good memories of facing United, having masterminded a famous win over the Red Devils during his tenure at Leeds] Every time I go to Leeds people remind me about it. It’s a different football club, different personnel, but I’ll draw from the experience and what a great feeling it was to win at Old Trafford that day. You don’t get the opportunity to do that very often. I want to try to replicate that if possible. You have to have that belief that you can do it…. You’ve got to go into a game like this and enjoy it. Our players may never get the chance to play against the likes of Falcao, Rooney, van Persie etc again. The one thing you have to say to them before they go out is have no regrets.”

Louis van Gaal: “We are in a process and you have to wait to see how far we can reach together. It is logical that sometimes you don’t play well but I can assure you that it is not only Manchester United who sometimes play badly. We have never played [a perfect] 90 minutes. We have played maybe 80 or 70 minutes and we have also played very well and lost – that is the beauty of football, the better team does not always win.”
