Phil Neville has confirmed that he has left Manchester United's coaching staff as he begins a new role with Match of the Day.
The Class of 92 star had formed part of David Moyes's set-up, and was retained by Ryan Giggs after the United legend took on the position of caretaker boss.
He coached alongside fellow Class of 92 graduates Paul Scholes, brother Gary Neville and Nicky Butt. But after Giggs was named as Van Gaal's second in command following the Dutchman's appointment, speculation gathered pace that the likes of Neville, Scholes and Butt would leave the club.
And Neville has since confirmed via a Twitter Q&A that he will not stay on as a United coach this season.
A fan tweeted Phil saying: "Phil, are you still on the coaching team at United? #legend".
Neville replied: "No."
The news comes on the same day the BBC confirmed Neville would take up a position as pundit on Match of the Day's new look team for the new Premier League campaign.
Neville will also now have more time to focus on Salford City FC, the semi-professional team he bought along with Giggs, Butt and Scholes earlier this year.
Alongside Neville on the Match of the Day sofa will be Rio Ferdinand and Ruud Gullit. They replace the departed Alan Hansen.
Van Gaal brought his Dutch team with him to Old Trafford, employing Frans Hoek as his goalkeeping coach, Albert Stuivenberg as his assistant, Marcel Bout as opposition scout and Jos van Dijk as training physiologist.
A number of other existing United coaches were kept on as well, including fitness guru Tony Strudwick.
