Manchester United have long-term plan in place
Manchester United will only replace Louis van Gaal as manager when they feel Ryan Giggs is ready to take over the reigns at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been strongly linked with sacking the Dutchman and replacing him with recently-sacked Jose Mourinho, but according to the latest reports, that is simply not the case.
United officials have given Van Gaal the vote of confidence in recent weeks and have ensured him that his job is safe and in no danger despite the recent run of bad results.
Before yesterday’s win over Swansea City, you’d have to go back to November to see United’s last victory in the Premier League, but despite that run of form, Van Gaal is still trusted by the United board.
Long-term Plan in Place
According to reports, Ed Woodward and the Glazer family have a plan in place which will see Van Gaal replaced by Giggs as manager, which will happen once the Welshman is ready to become first-team manager.
The former-player had a spell as interim-manager following David Moyes‘ sacking, but the club want him to become their next permanent boss once Van Gaal retires.
This means there are no plans in place to appoint Mourinho, despite reports suggesting otherwise.
