Louis van Gaal shares a joke with some United fans last night

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was spotted laughing and joking with fans after the goalless draw with Chelsea on Monday as he left Old Trafford (watch video below).

Van Gaal showed no signs of being under pressure, the draw with the Blues giving him some respite from constant questions about his position.

The Dutchman said he would not quit after United extended their run without a victory to eight games in all competitions with a 0-0 draw with champions Chelsea.


Sixth-placed United produced an improved display at Old Trafford, having limped to a 2-0 defeat at Stoke City on Saturday, enjoying two-thirds of the possession without being able to break down Chelsea's defence.

Asked about the constant media speculation over his job, Van Gaal told BT Sport: "I cannot have any influence on that. I can only work with my players and you have seen my players are fighting for me and they have given a good performance.

"Even after this result, the fans were applauding so I cannot say I am very much concerned but in this football world you never kno".
