Van Gaal eyes Europa League triumph as ticket to Champions League

Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal, has admitted that their best chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League, is winning the Europa League.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to Sunderland on Sunday and failed to make up ground on the top four teams, who play each other on Sunday.

This means United are six points adrift of Champions League places and may be further away by the end of the weekend.

Their next game is away to Midtjylland in the Europa League round of 32 on Thursday.

With the winner of the competition qualifying for the Champions League, Van Gaal thinks that is more feasible route.

“It will be very difficult. It is still possible, but it is very difficult,” the Dutchmansaid.

“The way with the Europa League is easier, I think, but also not so easy because there also you have a fantastic European level in that cup, so you have to fight for it.

“You can easily say ‘ okay, the other way’ – but also you have to show your capacity, in every match, you have to show it and we didn’t do that today.”
