Two days after leading United to their first major trophy of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, Louis van Gaal’s turbulent two-year Old Trafford reign was brought to an end.

The divisive Dutchman paid for United’s prosaic style and underwhelming substance, with Saturday’s FA Cup win unable to mask the poor Premier League performances that saw United miss out on Champions League qualification on goal difference.
