Under-fire Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has come out and said that he cannot predict his future at the club as the Manchester United board will evaluate his performance at the end of this season.
The former Ajax manager is well aware of the fact that results have not been going his way, and with the fans asking for his head, Van Gaal could very well become Manchester United’s next managerial casualty if the Red Devils fail to finish this season outside the top four.
However, if van Gaal fails to achieve this, then Van Gaal may well be on his out come the end of the season.
“I cannot say [I will be here if we fail to make the top four] because I think the board has to evaluate after the results of this year what they have to do,” the United boss told Sky Sports.
“I think that is normal and I cannot predict that when I do not know the facts.
“First you have to see the facts, I have always said that. The results and also the titles or the Champions League positions, you can only say at the May 15 ‘yes, it is like that or like that’.
“You can only evaluate when you have the total facts and now I cannot say that and my board cannot say that either because we have to play matches still.
The Manchester United boss further admitted than leading one of the top club teams in world football means winning something and stated that he is still working on a game plan.
“I am a rational person. I know that a manager of Manchester United has to win something, but I am still working on that.”
“We have to play against West Ham United, then Everton and then the final. Every match counts now for United”
Future hangs in the balance for Louis Van Gaal
Every match counts for Manchester United now as they are sixth in the Premier League table and have a FA Cup quarter-final replay against West Ham on April 13. The Red Devils are slated to play Everton on Sunday, before clashing swords against West Ham in the FA Cup replay. A Quarter final FA Cup exit at the hands of the Hammers and United’s potential inability to qualify for the Champions League next season could well cost Van Gaal his job.
