Louis van Gaal has broken the media as the Dutchman reportedly stormed out of the press conference which took place at 16:00 GMT. It is believed that the presser lasted barely 4 minutes and 58 seconds. Raging with anger the Manchester United boss was frustrated with the media defaming him and spreading rumours about his sacking.  He was in no mood to discuss his future when he faced the media ahead of United’s Boxing Day trip to Stoke.

He spoke saying,

‘’Has anybody in this room not a feeling to apologise to me?” said Van Gaal. “That’s what I am wondering.”

“I think I was already sacked I have read. Or have been sacked. Or that my colleague [Jose Mourinho] was here already.”

‘’What do you think that happens with my wife or with my kids? Or with my grandchildren? Or with the fans of Manchester United? Or with my friends? What do you think?”

“They have called me, a lot of times, and also Arsene Wenger is saying something about that.’’ 

“Do you think I want to talk with the media now? I am here only because of the Premier League rules. I have to talk with you. But I can only see that when I talk to you that you put it in your context.”

“I have tried to lift the confidence of my players. I have done everything this week.”

I have held meetings, evaluation meetings with the players, with members of staff, I have held a Christmas lunch, I gave a speech and I feel the warmth and the the support of everybody at Carrington, this AON Training Complex.”

“But I didn’t feel that [warmth] in the media. I can imagine that you can write about that subject.”

“We are not in a good position but four weeks ago we were in first place and in about four weeks we can again be in that position again.”

“You have to stick by the facts and when I get calls from Ed Woodward, Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill, because you are creating something that is not good, that is not being the facts, and now I have to answer questions. I don’t think I want to do it.”

“I am focused on Stoke City. I wish you a merry Christmas and also maybe a Happy New Year when I see you.”

“Enjoy the wine and a mince pies.”

And he walked away.
