Louis van Gaal latest – live: Manchester United manager arrives for training ahead of expected dismissal
Louis van Gaal’s tenure as manager of Manchester United is expected to be brought to an end with Jose Mourinho, the former Chelsea coach, waiting in the wings.
Just two days after guiding his side to FA Cup glory, Van Gaal will pay the price for an otherwise underwhelming season, which saw a group stage exit from the Champions League and a fifth-place finish domestically.
However, it is Van Gaal’s heavy-handed style of management which, as revealed by The Independent, has done the most damage.
The 64-year-old has lost the respect of the Old Trafford dressing room to such an extent that, even if a top four finish had been achieved, he would not see out the final year of his three-year contract.
