Manchester United: Van Gaal doesn't want Woods

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has told goalkeeping coach Chris Woods that he will be replaced this summer. 

According to The Daily Mail, Woodward told Woods hat he will be replaced once Van Gaal takes over as the club's new manager. 

Woods arrived at Manchester United last summer as part of David Moyes' coaching staff, however it now appears that he will be relieved of his duties. 

Despite Manchester United's troubles under Moyes throughout the campaign, goalkeeper David de Gea was the club's stand out player, and was named the team's Player of the Year for 2013/14.

However, it looks likely that the club will enter a new era under Van Gaal as he looks towards bringing success back to the club.

It looks set to be a busy summer at The Theatre of Dreams after the club's worst ever Premier League finish, and it appears to be a future that Woods won't be part of. 

If reports are to be believed, Woodward told Woods about his future after Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand was told that he wasn't going to be handed a new deal with the club. 

Manchester United fans: Do you think Van Gaal is right to let Woods leave? Have your say below!
