Louis van Gaal urges Manchester United team to 'kill off' games

Louis van Gaal says that he wants his Manchester United team to be more ruthless and 'kill off' games.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes that his team need to be more ruthless in order to 'kill off' their opponents.

The Red Devils will take on West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening following the recent international break.

After a three-game winless start to the season, United have begun to find their feet following three wins out of their last four.

"I am looking for balance in the team, not only spectacular attacking football," Van Gaal told reporters. "But also when you lose the ball, that you have a shape as a team and that you can defend more easily and kill the game better.

"I think the players understand the philosophy better but they have to perform that philosophy and we have to show it."

United are currently fourth in the table.
