SACKED: Louis van Gaal

Manchester United gives Van Gaal the boot.

Manchester United sacked manager Louis van Gaal on Monday after an FA Cup triumph failed to make up for the club’s inability to qualify for the Champions League amid widespread discontent with a season of insipid performances.

The Dutchman was dismissed two days after United’s win over Crystal Palace in the Wembley Cup final, their first trophy in three years, paving the way for the widely-expected appointment of former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho as his successor.

News of Van Gaal’s impending departure from the club leaked out minutes after Saturday’s 2-1 extra-time victory over Palace and, following relentless media speculation and a day of negotiations, it was confirmed by both sides on Monday evening.
