MANCHESTER – Manchester United have sacked Louis van Gaal just two days after the Dutchman led them to victory over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final.

Van Gaal has been made to pay for United’s poor Premier League campaign and will be replaced by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

His Dutch coaching staff – including United assistant coach Albert Stuivenberg and goalkeeper coach Frans Hoek – have also left the club with immediate effect.

Ed Woodward arrived at Manchester United’s Carrington training complex ahead of talks with Van Gaal on Monday morning.

The United executive vice-chairman informed Van Gaal he will no longer continue as manager as they look to appoint Mourinho as his successor.

Van Gaal arrived at Carrington at around 8.45am. His entire coaching staff were also present as they learned their fate. Mourinho expects to have more talks on Tuesday ahead of signing a three-year deal with his long-term assistant Rui Faria and goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro expected to follow.

Ryan Giggs’ future at United is up in the air despite Mourinho’s wish to keep the Welshman at the club.
Van Gaal was followed into United’s training ground by employment lawyer Paul Gilroy QC, who has long worked with the League Managers Association.

Having initially been turned away by security, he was allowed into the complex around an hour after the Dutchman arrived. Gilroy lists former United manager David Moyes among the clients he has advised, along with Sir Alex Ferguson, Roy Hodgson and Brendan Rodgers.

Chambers and Partners describe Gilroy as ‘a noted employment specialist’ who is ‘renowned for getting a fantastic deal for managers’.
