Van Gaal admits United's PL season start not good enough post Burnley draw

London: Manchester United football team boss Louis van Gaal has admitted that the club's start to the Premier League season has not been good enough after his side drew 0-0 at Burnley.

United are yet to win a competitive fixture under the Dutchman, who gave a debut at Turf Moor to new 59.7 million pounds record signingAngel Di Maria . Van Gaal said that when one has two points out of nine that is not good enough and that is disappointing.

Van Gaal also said that the progress is there but a club like United has to win, The BBC reported.

Van Gaal was without 11 players for the game at Burnley, who were involved in their first goalless draw in 41 Premier League matches as they deservedly claimed a first point of the season.

As well as the injury absentees, United were also unable to play defender Marcos Rojo as they wait for a work permit for the Argentina international following his 16 million pounds signing from Sporting Lisbon.

Van Gaal said that at the moment it's certainly not a world-class team, but they have to wait and have belief that it will come. The United squad will reportedly be strengthened by the arrival of Netherlands international Daley Blind after the club agreed a fee with Ajax for the defender.

The Dutchman said that he thinks that in the first half United did the same thing as Burnley, they fought, and added that one has to play the ball against teams like Burnley, his side did that better in the second half and created chances.

But, Van Gaal said that one has to score from those chances, and the United squad didn't do that. He said that it is a disappointing result.
