"He (van Gaal) is a good manager, he will help me discover what I can do.
"All I have done is what he has asked. I’ve worked hard, that’s what he told me to do. It’s a clean slate for me.
"Last year I made advancements in my game and I just want to play for Manchester United. Hopefully, this will be my chance."
Van Gaal confirmed that United are still in the market for a new central defender.
"I am looking at the defenders we have first," he said.
"And, when you see our three matches, we are doing well, I think. But it is right that we are looking for defenders, because a lot of defenders have gone. We have to replace them but I also like Michael Keane and Tyler Blackett."
