Van Gaal to keep faith with winning team

‘Never change a winning team’ is a piece of footballing wisdom currently very much in vogue at Bayern. Louis van Gaal has sent out an unchanged line-up in the last two matches, and his men promptly won both. Unsurprisingly, the coach is set to start Friday’s Bundesliga fixture against Borussia Mönchengladbach with the same successful eleven.

“This team has won twice, played good football twice, and improved again against Hannover. I think we’ll play with the same line-up against Gladbach on Friday,” Van Gaal exclusively told on Wednesday.
