Louis Van Gaal could be 24 hours away from the sack should United lose against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup on Monday.
The Star notes: “The club believe the manager’s position would become untenable if United lose [at Shrewsbury].”
The Reds boss is close to the sack according to the latest reports as the club’s season teeters on the brink of total disaster. United are 2-1 down in the Europa League first leg, are six points off the top four and crashed out of the Champions League in the group stages. To say Van Gaal has struggled to fulfill the expectations of last season is a massive understatement. It will come as no surprise to fans to hear that the manager is under huge pressure going into Monday’s game and may finally be running out of luck with the board.
The fans have already started turning against Van Gaal and it’s only a matter of time before the hierarchy begin to feel the same way.
