Louis van Gaal "out" banner was a hoax and will not fly over Old Trafford

Louis van Gaal's reign at Manchester United is teetering on the edge of disaster as everybody seems to be turning against him. 

Fans have been vocal in their demand for an improvement in the style of play from the Red Devils but, while results were positive, those cries could be ignored.

However, the Old Trafford giants are now on a five-game run without a win and the cries of discontent are turning into roars.

Along with the supporters, a number of pundits and ex-players are questioning the Dutchman as things continue to get worse for the United manager.

A picture surfaced on Twitter on Tuesday evening showing the words 'Van Gaal' on a very familiar looking banner. 

It led some to believe the current boss would receive the same treatment as his predecessor David Moyes. 

The Scot famously faced the embarrassment of a banner being flown over Old Trafford during their game with Aston Villa that read 'Wrong One - Moyes Out'.

But Van Gaal will not suffer the same fate - yet - as the company who created the banner have admitted it was all just a prank.

Manchester Evening News' Samuel Luckhurst tweeted confirmation that the photo was just an elaborate hoax.


However, that does not mean a banner will not fly above Old Trafford in the future.

Fans are incredibly unhappy with their manager for a style of football perceived as boring.

The supporters have every right to be angry. The amount of money Van Gaal has spent should be producing better football and results. 

Another game without a win would be disastrous and a home tie with Norwich City has never been so important.
