Fans and pundits remain divided over Louis van Gaala s explosive pre-match press conference as the Dutchman demanded an apology from the members of the press for spreading rumours regarding his sacking on social media.

The press conference lasted a total of 4 minutes and 58 seconds as Van Gaal asked the journalists present to a enjoy the wine and a mince piea before bidding them goodbye. However, Van Gaala s press conference evoked mixed reactions as some claimed that he was justified in walking out of the room.

Others however, weren’t convinced with his press-conference. While some compared his rant to Benitez’s at Liverpool, others claimed that Van Gaal had clearly ‘lost the plot’ at Manchester United.

Piers Morgan too had something to say as Manchester United fans demanded Van Gaal’s attacking ferocity from their players on the pitch.

As opinions remain divided over Van Gaala s press-conference, it is his performance in the coming weeks that will ultimately decide his future at Manchester United. Though the Dutchman came out all guns blazing at the press-conference, a lackluster performance from the team over the Christmas period will once again put him in the dock.

While there are those who have appreciated his comments against the members of the press, his latest rant is likely to have painted a target on his back. Hence, it will be interesting to see if he receives any support from the media should United continue to suffer on the pitch.
