Bayern Munich have had a poor start to the season and are currently 12th in the Bundesliga.
The reigning Bundesliga champions are thirteen points behind league leaders Mainz.
“Winning the Bundesliga title is still realistic. We only have three points fewer than at this stage last season. I cannot promise that we will win a title, but I can promise that we will do everything we can for it,” said Van Gaal on the club’s official website.
