It has been revealed that Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger says he is ‘convinced’ the Red Devils will succeed under current manager Louis van Gaal.
Schweinsteiger likened United’s current circumstances to van Gaal’s reign at Bayern Munich, which saw them win the Bundesliga and make the final of the UEFA Champions League.
“It is not about October or November, it is about May,” Schweinsteiger told Sky Sports.
“I recognise similarities between Louis van Gaal here and at Bayern Munich.
“In Munich, if you remember, it took a while before the team understood exactly how he wants to play football but in the end we won the Bundesliga title and made it to the Champions League final.
“I remember the fans were unsure about him early on at Bayern but in the end we did the double and so the fans in Munich loved him.
“I am sure Louis will bring success to United. I am convinced about that but we have to do our work and we have to improve. I am convinced it will happen.
“You have to be patient but, of course, during that you have to win, you have to get results and you have to score.
“You recognise what the supporters are saying but football is not only attack.”
