Man United boss targets better performance despite Wolfsburg win

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has admitted that his team still has some improving to do despite picking up their first three points in the Champions League, Skysports reports.

The Premier League giants lost a very early goal courtesy of a strike from Wolfsburg star Daniel Caligiuri in the fourth minute, but managed to stage a comeback to win the game 2-1.

Juan Mata converted from the spot in the 34th minute after a handball incident by Caligiuri before Chris Smalling netted the winner in the 53rd minute to reward his side with all three points.

Despite the victory, Van Gaal believes that his team still need to improve after the squad had a drop in performance during the second half, but was happy overall with the result.

“We have to keep our feet on the ground and we have to improve a lot to be at the top of Europe,” he said.

“We have beaten Wolfsburg, I am very happy and the players are very happy, but we have to improve on the second-half performance and we have to know that, and I have said that also to the players.”

The Red Devils will now face Arsenal and Everton in the next two weeks before playing CSKA Moscow in their next Champions League encounter.
