Van Gaal believes departure makes Inter tie harder

Van Gaal’s tenure at the club will end at the end of the season with the club out of the German club and struggling in the league, but they are 1-0 up against Inter Milan going into the return in Munich this week.

He said: “I think (the Inter game) is more difficult now than before this decision because I am a relationship coach, the players have a social and emotional relationship with me and my staff.”
