Rio Ferdinand says Van Gaal won't be at Manchester United next season

There are some bad TV pundits out there, but we here at GiveMeSport have never put Rio Ferdinand in the same bracket as your Robbie Savages and Michael Owens. For sure, he is one of the good guys.

But, unless you've been hiding under a rock this season, anyone could have come up Ferdinand's latest prediction, which appears to be a case of stating the bleeding obvious.

The former Manchester United legend says he does not think Louis van Gaal will be managing his former club next season, which is pretty much a nailed-on guarantee on current form.

In fact, his prediction could prove true in a matter of hours with a number of reports saying the Dutchman will vacate his post if they lose to Chelsea in Monday evening's Premier League clash.

A defeat would be their fifth in a row and sources close to Old Trafford believe Van Gaal will jump before he is pushed, leaving the club manger-less going into 2016.

And even the fans are preparing for the seemingly inevitable with pictures of Jose Mourinho scarves appearing on sale outside Old Trafford ahead of the game against Chelsea.

Great insight

Still, Ferdinand felt obliged to get his point across, explaining that Van Gaal's time as Red Devils manager appears to be drawing to a close.

He said, according to the Mirror: "It is a big game for LVG. It seems as though he hasn't got much time left now. The press have been throwing out some of the stats about his reign at Old Trafford.

"And with the likes of [Jose] Mourinho, [Pep] Guardiola and club legend [Ryan] Giggs waiting, it doesn't appear as though he will be there at the start of next season."

Cheers for the insight, Rio.
