London, Jan. 30 (ANI): Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has said that his side are dreaming of lifting the prestigious FA Cup for the first time since 2004.
In a major relief for the under-fire Dutchman, United claimed a 3-1 win over Derby County in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday.
Daley Blind and Juan Mata scored for United in the second half after George Thorne had cancelled out Wayne Rooney’s 16th-minute opener.
Reflecting on his team’s performance, Van Gaal said that they played at the right time against the resistance of Derby, adding that they are dreaming of the FA Cup as they haven’t won it for a long time, the Mirror reported.
United’s performance came under severe criticism in the wake of winning only four of their last 14 games, and were booed off after last weekend’s 1-0 home defeat by Southampton. (ANI)
