Louis Van Gaal

By now, it is no longer a secret that Manchester United board are holding an emergency meeting at their London HQ where Louis Van Gaal’s future is the biggest topic of discussion. Early reports from London suggest that Van Gaal has been sacked as the Man United manager with immediate effect.

The biggest hint of the news comes from the fact that Sky Bet have suspended the betting on Van Gaal getting sacked before the news year. Add to that leading journalists around the world – Mark Ogden, Andy Mitten, Jason Burt all have reported the same thing in recent times.

It would be very surprising if Van Gaal survives the sack following the emergency meeting tonight. Mirror have claimed that Ryan Giggs will be the man to take charge for the Boxing Day game against Stoke with Jose Mourinho to be be named as the permanent manager on coming Monday.

We are keeping a close eye on the proceedings and will have an update as soon as we get one.
