Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has admitted he is worried about facing Leicester’s Jamie Vardy in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Vardy has been in great form this season for table-topping Leicester, scoring 10 straight goals, and starred in the 5-3 victory over United last season.
“He was already last year a very nasty player for us,” Van Gaal said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.
“He scores, he provoked a penalty and now he is scoring in a row ten goals so now you are a great player. I only know, for example, Dennis Bergkamp as a player with me did the same with Ajax and that is not so easy.”
United were booed off Old Trafford after the 0-0 draw with PSV in midweek left them on the brink of Champions League elimination, but Van Gaal insists his team is doing well
He said: “The fans have to be happy, you are playing for the fans but you have to see how our opponents are playing against us.
“If we weren’t creating chances I’d be worried, but we are and we don’t give too much away – normally our results are good.”
The Dutchman will not rule Leicester out of winning the Premier League title.
“I don’t think anybody has expected that [Leicester at the top], even Leicester themselves,” Van Gaal added.
“But they are deserved at number one because points are the most important thing; goals are important, but winning points is more important.”
