FA Cup Victory Not Enough To Save Manchester United’s Van Gaal
In a press conference following his team’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal seemed to spend more time defending his position than celebrating lifting the FA Cup.
Members of the press seemed to have more knowledge of the persistent rumours that it would be Jose Mourinho in charge of the Old Trafford team next season, Van Gaal.
It is thought that the club’s owners are dissatisfied with the lack of progress, with a poor European campaign seeing them knocked out of the Champions League in the group stages, followed by defeat to arch rivals Liverpool in the Europa League. The final nail in the coffin was the fifth place finish in the English Premier League, leaving them out of the Champions League next season.
Should Van Gaal have been given more time?
