Manchester United’s recent 2-1 loss to Norwich City is the latest in a series of disappointing results that have seen them get knocked out of the Champions League and the top 4 of the Premier League, infuriating fans and putting manager Louis van Gaal under immense pressure.
The criticism of Dutch manager Louis van Gaal and his conservative ways have reached a boiling point, and the number of Manchester United fans who stand in support of him grow fewer and fewer. His boring, possession-based and back passing approach to the game has had fans fuming for months now, but the recent run of bad results has struck the point home.
Louis van Gaal was selected as manager because of his exploits at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. @ManUnitedWorld have recently uploaded a statement made by former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness after the Germans gave Van Gaal the sack, and it is something that The Red Devil’s fans will find themselves eerily relating to.

Mourinho or Pep?
If Van Gaal is to be sacked by Manchester United, they will be looking to bring in a top notch manager to replace him. One obvious candidate would be recently sacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who has been eyeing the managerial role at Old Trafford for a long time.
Another is the mastermind Pep Guardiola, currently managing Bayern Munich, who is being linked to every top club in Europe after his decision to not extend his contract at the German club beyond this season. From the way things stand, fans will not be pleased if Louis van Gaal continues to hold on to his job this season.
