LVG rubbishes Mourinho claims, says he is annoyed for being sacked by the media
Potentially the biggest stories of the summer would be the transfer saga of Portuguese genius Jose Mourinho to Manchester United in the place of Louis van Gaal who has failed to live up to the expectations of the Old Trafford faithful.
Ever since Mourinho was expelled from the Stamford Bridge in December, Manchester United have been linked with him as a replacement for out of favor Louis van Gaal who was in line to be sacked in the same month.
However, the 64-year old has lived on and with recent results might just have an opportunity to end the season with Manchester United. However, if he is not able to take them to Europe next season, he may well end up getting sacked before the start of the next season.
However, the Dutchman denied any rumors that stated that the Old Trafford franchise is in talks with his successor and revealed that he will be informed before a contact is even made.
“I can only say that I have spoken with [United’s executive vice-chairman] Ed Woodward and I cannot imagine that they have spoken with each other.”
“I think that if they speak with another manager, they would tell me because our relationship is like that. “
However, he acknowledged the fact that the club officials might have a lot of pondering to do and said that “it is also a professional attitude” that the club has to “prepare themselves if they want a change”
Louis van Gaal also explained that he has no problems with the owners of the club and insisted that they trust him to the fullest. He insists he is comfortable with the trust he has built up with Woodward and United’s owners, the Glazer family.
“If they are thinking that they want to replace me, they have to prepare and they have to enquire, that is what I think,” Van Gaal said.
He insisted that he will be informed by the officials and that he trusts them to inform him about any change in the structure of the club including a contact to replace him as the manager.
“If it is like that, they have to say it to me. And I believe they will tell me if it is like that. I not only have a strong relationship with Ed, but also with the Glazers. I have a good feeling with the Glazers also,” he added.
The Dutchman also showed his anger over the media reports that suggested that he would be sacked if the club loses before more than a couple of matches. The 64-year old explained that he was annoyed completely with the way he was portrayed by the media.
“And that is why I am annoyed with all the publicity. I have been ‘sacked’ three times and now it is about negotiations starting with Jose Mourinho. The next time, it will be another [manager],” he said, showing his frustration towards the media.
These statements from Van Gaal will surely put ice on the rumors about him being replaces by Jose Mourinh but it by no means makes Van Gaal’s place at the club as surety.
The Dutchman still has to take the club into the top 4 places to keep his job, else he might be ironically replaced by Jose Mourinho after the end of the
