Red devils boss is ready to throw in the towel after losing the confidence of Man United fans. The manager admits that he had let the fans down after failing to meet their expectations. Man United fans booed off the Dutch boss at Old Trafford following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat as a sign of open revolt against the manager for his style of play, which has been termed boring and risk averse.
Van Gaal is believed to have had talks about his future with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
It is reported that the players have also been canvassed about the manager’s future. He is ready to walk rather than wait for the sack. LVG stated, “I’m very disappointed that I cannot reach the expectations of the fans. “They have or they were optimistic and I cannot fulfil their expectations. So I am very frustrated because of that.”
United board member David Gill piled pressure on Van Gaal claiming he has under-achieved after being backed in the transfer market.
The former club chief executive also said the club demands attractive football and LVG, is not delivering it.
According to Gill, it has been a season of under-achievement given the investment that was made in the summer.
Van Gaal, 64, has spent £250million since taking over 18 months ago but the club is in reverse.
Saturday’s latest defeat left them five points adrift of the Champions League places and ten behind leaders Leicester.
Gill added, “I’m not going to sit here and say it’s that attractive for me, what we did in the past was great. We want attractive football.”
