Manchester United sack Louis van Gaal – Reports
MANCHESTER United have sacked manager Louis van Gaal, according to reports.
The Dutchman’s departure had been widely expected following Saturday’s FA Cup win over Crystal Palace, with Sky sources understanding Jose Mourinho is set to take over as United manager.
Van Gaal left United’s team hotel in London on Sunday following their FA Cup triumph, telling Sky Sports News HQ’s reporter “it’s over” – although United insisted that comment was referring purely to the season being “over”, not his reign as United boss.
However, after a meeting with United’s employment lawyer Paul Gilroy QC at the club’s Carrington training base on Monday morning, it appears that Van Gaal and United have parted company, although there has been no official conformation as yet. – SkyNews.com
