Louis van Gaal says FA Cup is ‘not important to him’ after West Ham victory

Manchester United made it into the semi-final of the FA Cup for the first time in years yesterday evening, thanks to a stunning goal from Marcus Rashford, followed by a Marouane Fellaini finish to make it two. David de Gea also played a big part in safe passage into a Wembley semi-final.

After the game Louis van Gaal didn’t seem that upbeat about the result, and admitted that the game isn’t important for him, but more so for the players and fans.

“It is not important for me, it is important for Man Utd, for the players and for the team.” Louis van Gaal said.

To be honest I’d beg to differ, Louis. If Manchester United could somehow win the FA Cup this season, then the board could well consider keeping the Iron Tulp on for his final season in charge.

Keeping him on wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world either, but victory in the cup is a must. Louis van Gaal is a big believer in youth which we have seen firsthand many times this season. Lets be honest, we could do a whole lot worse…
