Ask a large proportion of Manchester United supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern whether they’re happy with Louis van Gaal right now and many of them will claim they’re not.
Eliminated from the Champions League at the hands of Wolfsburg last week before going down 2-1 at AFC Bournemouth ahead of drawing an incredibly uninspiring tie against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League, times are tough for the Red Devils at the minute.
The crux of the issue at the moment seems to be the fact that many are reflecting on van Gaal’s time in charge at Old Trafford so far while claiming what exactly has he done beyond restabilising the club?
Splashing a much publicised £250 million on the playing staff of course, some United fans by the bar are actually claiming the club are no closer to the Premier League title under the Dutchman than they were under the ill-fated reign of David Moyes!
While the likes of Bayern Munich splashed £21 million to sign Douglas Costa in the summer, United bought the likes of Anthony Martial for £36 million and it seems a lot of Red Devils fans’ patience is running out regarding van Gaal’s growing series of excuses.
The cold hard fact of the matter is that it’s hard to have sympathy with a manager who has gone out and splashed a shed load of cash on players he believes in such as Memphis Depay while the likes of Javier Hernandez were outcast and sold on because he didn’t rate them.
With all of these things in mind, many are of the opinion that van Gaal might not be around for too much longer and that’s why today, we’ve devised a list of five possible United managerial replacements for him next season.
