Louis van Gaal refused to shed any light on his future following fresh reports Jose Mourinho will take his job at Manchester United.
Speculation suggesting Mourinho will take charge at Old Trafford in the summer has been rumbling on for some time now, but reports in today’s press claim the former Chelsea boss has now agreed a deal.
The fact that United have booked their place in the FA Cup Final after beating Everton, has done nothing to dampen the rumours.
United are currently fifth in the Barclays Premier League and having praised his team for their efforts on Saturday, the Dutchman – asked how important winning the FA Cup could be for the team’s development heading into next season – said: “I am not looking beyond this competition and FA Cup, because we live in the present.
“For the future, I will discuss that with my board and others.”
Van Gaal, whose current contract runs until the summer of 2017, was then asked if he would consider winning the FA Cup but failing to qualify for the Champions League a success.
The 64-year-old replied: “It is not for me to judge – it is for the board of Manchester United.”
