Louis van Gaal vowed to fight on as Manchester United manager after his team’s goalless draw against Chelsea
United stretched their winless run to eight matches after their seventh goalless stalemate of the campaign.
The Red Devils are in their lowest position at this stage of the season in 26 years, but there were enough encouraging signs for Van Gaal to deny he would quit, as he suggested he might after the 2-0 loss at Stoke on Boxing Day.
United put on their best display of the season in the first 45 minutes, rattling the woodwork on two occasions and drawing two superb saves from Thibaut Courtois.
United were unable to find the net, but Van Gaal, who was applauded as he entered and left the pitch on Monday, was in a boisterous mood post match.
“Inside of the club the players are willing to fight for every metre, the manager is willing to fight, the members of staff are willing to fight and the board is very confident in the staff and the manager so it (the negativity) is not inside Manchester United,” he said.
