5 reasons Man United should replace van Gaal with Mourinho

He’s more interested in results than a ‘philosophy’

Manchester United v Chelsea - Barclays Premier League

One of our punters made the jibe earlier by the bar for his mate to guess just how many times Louis van Gaal has mentioned the word ‘philosophy’ in his Old Trafford tenure so far.

With his answer being 1254, van Gaal has sounded like a broken record and we can’t for one second think that a home defeat to the likes of Norwich City was part of his masterplan.

The biggest criticism of van Gaal this season by fans and ex-players alike is that United’s possession-based game is boring and not the United way.

Now while Jose Mourinho has of course made a career out of making his sides hard to beat while parking the bus when necessary, what must be said is that he’s far more interested in results on a week-to-week basis than a philosophy.

The master of short-term success of course, if United fail to win silverware under Louis van Gaal this term, it’ll be three full seasons win which the Red Devils have won absolutely nothing.

With an entire generation of United fans having grown up in the Sir Alex Ferguson era, going this length of time without silverware is just alien to them and somebody who’ll get results on a consistent basis such as Mourinho has shown in years gone by will surely be sought-after to bring the glory days back.
