Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal dismisses retirement rumours

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has dismissed rumours suggesting he will soon retire.

Reports this week claimed that van Gaal will leave his post as Man United boss at the end of the campaign.

It was an interest report considering the uncertainty surrounding Pep Guardiola but van Gaal told the assembled press at his pre-match conference on Friday to not interfere in his affairs.

“This is not the business of the press. First you have sacked me and now you are interfering in my future,” van Gaal said.

“I have a relationship with the players and that is the most important thing. What is happening in the media is a different world.”

Van Gaal’s comments come after United denied rumours earlier this week that they had met with Guardiola.

There is still uncertainty regarding van Gaal’s position at United among supporters as they are not convinced he is the man to take the club forward but the Dutchman signed for three years at Old Trafford and he has often spoke of how he wants to fulfil his contract. Of course, things can change quickly but, for now, van Gaal appears to retain the support of the United hierarchy.
