Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is not under any pressure as he stands firm on why he picked the manager the club rather than take the easy route with Tottenham Hotspur, Mirror reports.

Despite losing his first match and drawing the following two matches, the 63-year-old manager insisted he needs more time and that he already knew what he was getting himself into when he decided to come to Old Trafford.

“No, I don’t regret taking this job,” he told the Daily Mirror. “Yes, it is a massive job I have taken on at Manchester United. I realise that.

“And the situation is not worse than I thought – I knew what I would find on my plate.

“I could have opted for an easier job. If I had gone to Tottenham, the job would not have been as enormous as here at United.

“I could have easily gone to Spurs. But I chose the biggest challenge of all the jobs in football. And I really wanted to join the number one club in the country, not Tottenham.

“Financially, Tottenham was kind of as attractive as Man United. But, in my eyes, Man United is still the number one club in England, Tottenham really is not.”
