It’s official! Louis van Gaal will no longer be Manchester United gaffer come the end of the season, with reports in the press today suggesting that the under-fire Dutchman doesn’t feature once in the Red Devils’ summer tour promotion videos.
And no, Jose Mourinho isn’t in the video, either.
If this is the way that LvG has found out that he no longer has a job at Old Trafford, it’s a bit bloody awkward. However, it isn’t quite as bad as some of these…
Imagine this, you’re eating your cereal whilst listening to the radio. Next thing you know, one of the powers that be of Goias, the club you manage, is phoning up the radio station to announce you’re sacked. Brutal.
Sir Bobby Robson
Bet Fulham wished they’d kept hold of the great Bobby Robson as manager given what he achieved in the game, rather than letting the former England gaffer find he’d been sacked via an Evening Standard headline.
The Dutchman found out at half-time of Spurs’ UEFA Cup clash with Getafe that he’d lost the confidence of the board and that he was no longer Tottenham manager!
To be fair, watching 45 minutes of a back five made up of Cerny, Chimbonda, Kaboul, Gardner and Lee would get anyone the sack.
