Ashley Young reveals Van Gaal's warning to Manchester United players

Manchester United

The Manchester United boss has sounded a warning to his players ahead of a tough Premier League season.

Louis van Gaal is realistic in his expectations and demands of his players, according to Ashley Young.

The Manchester United boss has seen his side lose once and draw twice in three Premier League games - hardly a dream start to his Old Trafford reign.

But success will come, according to winger Young, who says his manager is just as appreciative of United's current situation.

Indeed, Van Gaal has warned his players that things won't change 'in a week or a month' - but that things will improve with time, according to the 29-year-old.

"The manager has said things aren't going to change in a week or a month. It's going to take time for the players to adjust," Young told Inside United.

"We want to get results and I'm sure given the way we've worked in training the right results will come.

"We've got to keep thinking in the way that he has explained it to us and keep performing in the way he wants.

"Obviously things haven't gone the way we've wanted them to yet but we've just got to keep working on that philosophy that the manager wants, keep doing what we've been doing in training and show the spirit and togetherness that we always show.

"If we keep doing that then I'm sure everything will gel together and come good."

Manchester United's next Premier League clash comes at home to Queens Park Rangers, who are ahead of them by one point in the table.

Radamel Falcao, Marcos Rojo and more could be set for their United debuts against the Rs, while Eduardo Vargas could make his for the west London side.
