Manchester United fans have endured a troublesome few days in the Transfer Tavern, seeing their side knocked-out of the Champions League and then witnessing the remaining English clubs turn their fortunes around.
Whilst United succumbed to Europa League football, Manchester City and Chelsea got the results they needed to top their group and Arsenal completed the ultimate group-stage comeback after an awful start to their European campaign.
Now, with United facing Thursday night football which may derail their Premier League title push, The Daily Express has revealed that the Red Devils will look to sack Louis Van Gaal if he doesn’t achieve a top-three finish.
United currently sit fourth in the table, level on points with Manchester City, and just three points ahead of an in-form Tottenham side. With Leicester City and Liverpool also looking good this season, the fight for Champions League football is hotter than ever.
However, it appears a top four finish would not be enough to satisfy the United hierarchy and they want a higher finish that would see them assured of a spot in the Group Stage– which would mean they afford a tricky play-off tie, like they did this season.
Our fans have put many a pound into the slot machine in the past few days to try and find some luck, whilst they’ve stated they’d drive Van Gaal out of Old Trafford themselves.
United fans, is Van Gaal the right man to lead you? Let us know in the comments below!
