A few years ago I was here in a similar situation,” he began Hiddink and continued: “It is not easy to solve problems. You can not just show up and say it’s all settled. I talked a little bit yesterday with the team, we touched and the past. We talked about the reasons why I’m here and why they fell down. And he told I have many things happen in football, but they have to look at myself in the mirror, and not just for a second, but for a long time. “

I’m only here because of the rules of the Premier League and because I need to talk to you, “said Van Gaal, saying he does not want to answer questions from journalists.
“What do you think happens to my wife and children? My grandchildren? My family? United fans?
