Van Gaal Wants UCL Qualification More Than FA Success

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has stated qualifying for the UCL is more important for the club than winning the FA.

Red Devils sit two points behind Manchester City in fifth, and play Everton in the semifinal of the FA cup today.

The Dutchman, however, said a trophy represents a successful campaign, although he knows the importance of a top-four finish.

“I think it is always a success when you win the title,” Van Gaal said.

“For the club it is more important, I have said that already a lot of times, to qualify for the Champions League, because we have to show ourselves at the highest level. And that was also our aim.

“I think always when you win a title it brings again something where Manchester United stands for.

“We have had a period of winning many titles and we want to bring it back. When you win the FA Cup you have a title and a very respectable title in England – more than other countries.”
