Reports of the Manchester United manager handing over his resignation request to club officials have the fans in uproar, with most adamant that it would be foolish to keep him at the club after the disappointment of this season.
The Dutch manager had allegedly handed in a resignation letter some time on Saturday, but Manchester United Chief Executive Ed Woodward is trying to make him stay. The Fans have had their say on Twitter and it isn’t very pretty.
Let’s start with the resignation letter itself… the fan version of course!

So Van Gaal offered to leave and Woodward persuaded him to stay. Cool, brace yourselves for more weekend heartbreaks then. — Albert (@qweku1on1) January 26, 2016
Sounds like tomorrow is the day Louis Van Gaal’s #MUFC future will be decided. It would be best for everyone if he leaves.

Still with Louis Van Gaal? Okay! Bye Champions League, Bye Premier League and Bye Dignity! #MUFC

#MUFC should accept Van Gaal’s offer to resign, because by offering he’s accepted that he’s finished and his heart is no longer in it

Van Gaal has failed and accepts it. I respect him for that. He knows hes not the right man. But Ed Woodward what a spineless coward you are! — Hayley B (@Hayles_101) January 25, 2016
Seems Woodward is the only one – Van Gaal included – who thinks Van Gaal can turn #MUFC around. The club is in an absolute mess.

This Red Devils fan sums up the situation quite nicely…
Louis Van Gaal is 63 years old, gets ABUSE EVERY DAY by the Media & Fans, has offered to resign, apologized to the fans… Let him go FFS! — Billy Meredith (@UrmstonLordMUFC) January 25, 2016
