Louis van Gaal believes he has made Manchester United “a good team that’s difficult to beat” since being appointed manager.
The 1-1 draw with Leicester on Saturday leaves United third in the Premier League table, but still just one point separates them from leaders Manchester City and the Foxes in second place.
When asked whether his side can win the league this season, Van Gaal replied: “I’m working in a process of three years but I want to be champion when you can be champion.
“We were second [before the kick-off] and I think now we are third, so we are in the circumstances to fight for it, and we shall fight for it, because we are a good team that’s difficult to beat for every opponent,” said Van Gaal, who had seen United extend their unbeaten run to 10 games in 90 minutes in all competitions.
Van Gaal added: “We can win [against] every opponent, but it’s a rat race, it’s not so easy.”
