Louis van Gaal calls for focus ahead of Champions League game

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal asks his players to focus on CSKA Moscow and not on rivals Manchester City, who they play at the weekend.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has told his players to not look ahead and focus on the upcoming game against CSKA Moscow.

The Red Devils take on cross-city rivals Manchester City on Sunday, but the Dutchman believes that his team need to take things a game at a time ahead of a tough trip to Russia.

The 64-year-old told reporters: "For me, as a manager, the next match is the most important match. I don't think about Man City. I only think about CSKA Moscow and I have to focus on this match.

"I demand that also from my players. We have already lost one game against PSV away and we want to gain one point at least. That is why it is a very important match for us."

United look to win their second consecutive Champions League game against CSKA tomorrow.
