Cristiano Ronaldo has praised Louis van Gaal and insisted Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season.
Van Gaal’s side are only two points away from top spot in the Premier League and have now gone 555 minutes without conceding a single goal.
As well as the team’s fortunes in domestic competition, the Dutch manager has also been successful in leading them to the top of their Champions League group.
Ronaldo believes van Gaal can steer United to success this term.
“He [Van Gaal] is doing a good job at Manchester United, especially this year,” Ronaldo said.
“As people know, Manchester United is a club I support and I like it so what I expect is that Manchester United can be champions this year. This is my wish.”
Although United will certainly be up there come May, there is a sense that additions will be required in the winter transfer window if van Gaal’s side are to go all the way and win the Premier League this season. Van Gaal has often spoken of how he wants to inject “speed and creativity” into his side but the players he wants may not be available in January.
