Louis van Gaal has insisted he will not resign as coach of Manchester United.
The Red Devils’ 0-0 draw with Chelsea on Monday, means that they have not won in eight games across all competitions.
Before the game, scarves carrying Jose Mourinho’s face, were sold at the Old Trafford grounds as speculation continue to mount over Van Gaal’s future. But the Dutchman says he will not quit.
“On the contrary, when the players can give such a performances with this lot of pressure then it is not any reason to resign for me,” Van Gaal told BT Sport.
“Maybe the media wants that, but I shall not do that.
“I have a contract, so it’s not a question of staying, it’s a question of fulfilling my contract.”
Van Gaal also stated that he can win over the fans, if the results begin to improve.
“In my first year as a manager, it was much tougher, they were yelling every week against me, and then I won in my first year the Uefa Cup. And then the yelling was stopped,” he added.
“Here they are still applauding, not everyone, I have seen that, but the most important thing is what the players have done today, then the fans can be satisfied.”
