Manchester United fans heading into the Transfer Tavern to bring in the weekend are wondering what on earth they’ve done to deserve this news, after they read a report they’re far from happy with.
Van Gaal has been under pressure since before Christmas, with results and performances with the Red Devils far from ideal. The big turning point, however, was being knocked out of the Champions League at the end of the group stage.
Whilst speculation continues to surround his position, Van Gaal is confident he will keep his job if he can overturn a six-point deficit in the race for a top four finish and secure United a Champions League position once again.
Our landlord isn’t convinced though and he doesn’t fancy United’s chances anyway, with the race for the top four being extremely tight this season.
United fans, do you want Van Gaal to stay if you get a top four finish? Let us know in the comments below!
