Beckham: “United are on the right track under LVG”

Louis-van-Gaal-009David Beckham believes Louis Van Gaal has Manchester United on the right track and that trophies will soon return to Old Trafford.

United have not won a trophy since they clinched a 20th league title in May 2013 but Beckham said his former side was making progress under Van Gaal, even though they suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at the Emirates on Sunday.

“There were a couple of seasons where we didn’t win things,” said Beckham. “We ended up with the FA Cup but not doing well in Champions League and the Premier League. So these things do happen at clubs.

“We’ve been spoilt over the years at United — being so successful over the last 20 years.

“When the manager leaves and David Gill leaves [in the same summer] and a number of players stop playing and retire, like Scholesy and Giggsy, no matter what club it is or how much money you have behind you, there’s going to be a dip in trophies.

“Unfortunately when you are Manchester united, you can’t really have that.

“There are tough moments, and I think the weekend was a tough loss but, other than that, we seem to be slowly gradually getting back to some excitement.”
