Van Gaal wants more from Bayern

Posted Tuesday, September 22, 2009 by PA

Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal claims his team are still learning the ropes under his guidance, despite their third consecutive win on Saturday.

The Bavarians moved up to third in the Bundesliga with 2-1 triumph over Nurnberg, but Van Gaal insists the learning phase is not yet over and that he still expects improvements from his side.

"We have still got to get more mature," he said.

"We made a huge error: When you lead 1-0 after so much hard work, you cannot all go running forward.

"But I am still very happy that we won and I think we deserved to do so."

It was the first time but probably not the last that Bayern came up against a brick wall of defenders looking to steal a 0-0 draw.

And Van Gaal wants his team to learn how to deal with such opponents better in future.

"We did not do it very well," he said. "It was tough to play against a very well organised and very defensive team and I said that before the game.

"But we did create some chances and scored a goal."
