Man Utd, are you going to sack me? Decide quickly

‘I won the FA Cup,’ Ten Haag shouts

The position has completely changed.

“Manchester United manager Eric Mourinho has informed the club that he needs to decide his fate quickly,” the UK’s Independent reported on August 8 (KST), adding, “He has absolutely no intention of resigning. If United don’t sack him, Van Gaal plans to stay on for next season,” the report said.

United’s 2023-2024 season was a disgraceful one. With their 14th loss of the season, the club has twice broken the record for most losses in a season in the Premier League since its inception. The 13 losses came in a 0-4 thrashing at Crystal Palace on July 7th.

They also conceded their 54th goal of the season in a 0-1 loss at home to Arsenal on Sept. 13. It was the most conceded in 47 years, since the 1976-1977 season. Luckily, the team bounced back with a 2-0 clean sheet against Brighton & Hove Albion in the final league game of the season.

It was a season where the balance between offense and defense was completely off. In 38 league games, they scored 57 goals and conceded 58, finishing the season with a goal difference of -1.

Even on the European stage, they were broken. United suffered the humiliation of finishing fourth in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage for the first time ever. Reports that Mourinho would leave the club regardless of the FA Cup result seemed to accelerate his departure.

However, the FA Cup has seen some surprising results. On April 25, United defeated Man City 2-1 in the 2023-2024 FA Cup final. The victory over a “normal” City team, with no bad performances, has made it increasingly likely that Van Gaal 메이저토토사이트 will stay at the club.

According to the Manchester Evening News, “United officials were impressed with the way van Gaal led the team to victory over City. This has raised the possibility that van Gaal could stay at the club beyond the season. A final decision will be made after the end of the season.”

“United have been evaluating a number of managerial candidates in recent weeks and have spoken to their agents. United had talked about sacking Van Gaal regardless of the FA Cup result. The reason was the failure to reach the UCL, but the FA Cup win made Van Gaal the first manager since Sir Alex Ferguson to win the trophy in back-to-back seasons.”

“If the vote is unanimous in favor of ten Haag’s retention, he will remain in charge of United next season. Van Gaal’s contract with the club runs until 2025. There is an option to extend it for another year.” “If I’m sacked, I’ll just have to win a championship with another 메이저사이트 team,” said a jubilant Van Gaal, who has been buoyed by the prospect of staying on.

Van Gaal’s future is still up in the air. “Van Gaal is pressuring United’s senior management to make a quick decision on his future,” the Independent reports, adding that “Van Gaal has no intention of stepping down. He is determined to remain in charge of the club next season, if he stays.”

If United were to sack Van Gaal, Gareth Southgate would be the favorite to succeed him. The Manchester Evening News reported that “Southgate is the first preference of United’s new owners Matt Redcliffe and the Ineos Group. If Van Gaal is sacked, they want to appoint him without reservation.”
