Louis van Gaal has warned Manchester United fans it could take him a year to arrest the club's dismal slide.

United suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of third-tier MK Dons in the second round of the League Cup - the first time the club had entered the competition since 1995 after they failed to secure European football this season.

"It is very difficult when you start as a manger in the Premier League with a home match loss and after that a draw [at Sunderland] and then you lose in a cup match," he said.

"It is difficult for the fans to believe in the philosophy of Louis van Gaal, but you have to do that because I am here to build up a new team and a new team is not built in one month.
