Louis van Gaal is adamant that he will still be in charge of Manchester United when the new Premier League season starts in August.
The future of the 64-year-old Dutch tactician has consistently been called into question over the course of this season, with strong speculation suggesting former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will replace him in the Old Trafford hot seat in the summer.
However with United still fighting to secure a top-four finish which would subsequently see them qualify for the Champions League next season, and an FA Cup final to look forward to against Crystal Palace later this month, Van Gaal has again spoken out to insist he is going nowhere.
He said: “I knew it would be like this. ThatÂ’s why they hired me and we spoke about it.
“We always knew that the process would take three years. I wanted to sign only for two years.
“The club wanted me to sign for three years, not me. I signed for three years Â– so next year you will see me again.
“Every week for six months I have been sacked Â– and yet I am still here. But this has happened to me at every club I have been at.”
