Louis van Gaal faces player revolt


Senior members of the first-team want Dutchman sacked

Louis van Gaal is facing an uphill battle keeping his job at Manchester United after reports have emerged claiming senior players are leading a revolt against him.

The Dutchman guided United to yet another defeat on Saturday, this time at home to Southampton thanks to a Charlie Austin late-winner.

The 1-0 defeat to the Saints leaves Van Gaal‘s men five points off the top-four and 10-points off league leaders Leicester City, meaning it’s a real possibility that they could miss out on Champions League football next season.

Woodward Meets with Players

According to reports, chief executive Ed Woodward has already held talks with several of the senior players at Old Trafford and they’ve told him that they don’t like Van Gaal’s methods.

Woodward is convinced that some of the players have already stopped playing for the Dutchman, which could inevitably lead to him losing his job.

With pressure mounting on Van Gaal, former-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is waiting in the wings to take over.
