Van Gaal led his side to FA Cup glory.

Manchester United explain what Louis van Gaal was talking about when he said 'it's over'

Published 9 Comments

When Louis van Gaal stepped outside his team hotel this morning and told a Sky Sports reporter ‘it’s over,’ everyone assumed he was talking about his Manchester United future.

However, according to reports, the club have moved quickly to dismiss such assumptions. Instead, they claim that Van Gaal was talking about the season being ‘over’ rather than his spell at Old Trafford.

Hmmm, we’re not quite sure we believe that.

Jose Mourinho has been linked with the Manchester United hot seat ever since he was sacked as Chelsea boss back in December.

But Van Gaal has clung onto his job and led his side to FA Cup glory this weekend after triumphing over Crystal Palace 2-1 in extra time.

Following the win, Van Gaal hit out at media for the constant reports about his future.

“I show you the cup,” Van Gaal said in his post-match press conference when questioned on his future, per the Independent. “I don't discuss it with my friends in the media who have sacked me in the past six months.

“You had followed the board? I don't want to talk about leaving the club.”

BBC Sport are reporting that Van Gaal left United’s London hotel today without being told that he is due to be replaced by Mourinho.

Despite winning the first major trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson left, it will be very surprising if it isn’t ‘over’ for Van Gaal this summer regardless of what the club are trying to tell us.
