Louis van Gaal: I'm struggling.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has agreed that he is failing to match the expectations of the Red Devils fans after they lost to Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

Charlie Austin increased the pressure on the Dutchman as his 87th minute header handed the Saints three points at Old Trafford.

However, the former Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax coach admits he is failing to live up to standards at the Theatre of Dreams.
