Louis van Gaal:
"It is fantastic how they have performed. When you see us train, you can expect something but not 7-0. It was a surprise, but they were beautiful goals and beautiful attacks. The result always matters. With such a result you get confidence."
"The manager said to us afterwards that he was pleased with the game and a good performance but he wants us to keep improving. We have to keep working hard. 7-0 is a great score but it’s a friendly game. It’s important for us to start with a win like this and it will help us keep improving."
"It was a great feeling, it is pre-season and we want to get our fitness up and prepare for the new season as best we can. We have got some great games out here and we wanted to get off to a winning start and I felt that was a great performance."
"In pre-season, you can take your foot off the gas in the second half but we had a new team that went out there with a new formation that I think suited us perfectly. I don’t think LA Galaxy were able to cope with that, we got on the scoresheet in the first half and we wanted to get more goals. We managed to do that in the second half."
"I am not giving away too many ideas. When we defend, we defend as a team. When we attack, we attack as a team. The players are interchangeable. As the season progresses we will be looking to get balls into attacking areas to get goals. We saw that by the fact we managed to score seven times."
"It was a really good performance from the lads. We did really well for the first time with a new system, both with the ball and off the ball. The manager told us to go out there and prove ourselves and I think most players did that. I think he was satisfied with the performance overall - I think we did really well."
"We are all pleased with the result but we know this is just the first step. Some of the players have only been training for three or four days so we have more improvements to come, both physically and tactically. But I think we had a good understanding of the new system and the football the manager wanted us to play. It was a good game for us. The manager wants us to play quickly with the ball in the middle, try to look for options and also play with width as well. That’s what we’ll keep trying to do."
