Man Utd delay decision to announce Van Gaal as boss

Manchester United have delayed their decision to announce Louis van Gaal as their new manager, according to reports.

The Red Devils are believed to identified Van Gaal as the long-term successor to David Moyes, who was sacked last month after a tough time succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson. Ryan Giggs has been put in charge temporarily until the end of the season.

Recent reports had suggested that Manchester United would announce their new manager today, although that now appears highly unlikely.

The Telegraph and a host of other national media outlets claim the decision to announce Van Gaal as boss will be made next week, after Manchester United's Premier League campaign is over.

The 62-year-old will lead Holland at the World Cup in the summer before stepping down to take over at Old Trafford.

There remains some doubts over the future of Giggs, who played what could be his last game at Old Trafford in Manchester United's 3-1 win over Hull last night.

Reports suggest that he could be offered a role under Van Gaal, although that is far from certain.

The 41-year-old has guided the Red Devils to two wins and one defeat in his three games in charge so far, and will bow out against Southampton on Sunday.

Manchester United currently sit in seventh in the league table, and they're destined to record their lowest finish since 1990.
