Following a campaign of bewildering decisions and poor management, it’s widely believed that Louis van Gaal is to blame for his own downfall at Manchester United.

The Dutchman’s future at Old Trafford is in considerable doubt and could well be determined when his side host Bournemouth this afternoon.

Win, and United could claim the fourth and final Champions League spot; lose, and a lowly finish of seventh potentially beckons depending on results around them.

An FA Cup final also awaits Van Gaal and co. yet victory at Wembley might not be enough to save his job.

However, the 64-year-old will hold one club legend responsible if he is sacked this summer - and that man is Paul Scholes.

The former midfielder has been one of Van Gaal’s biggest critics this season, which appears to have angered the United manager.

He said, per the Mirror: “Of course all this speculation about my future for six months makes me angry. I have shown that many, many times.

“You are asking and you know already my answer! It’s rhetorical, I think. I have shown that and I am an open book for everybody.

“I have said that, but in spite of the attacks of the media - and not only the media, the legends and other kinds of people - I am here and I am fighting.

“And I believe in myself. I believe in Manchester United. I believe in the players.”

He might believe in them, but there’s a sense they don’t hold such faith in him.
