Bookmaker slashes odds on Van Gaal leaving United

The Dutchman suffered with a furious reception after his side's 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford against Southampton on Saturday, and once again he is in the firing line.

Van Gaal United.html">said after the game he did not blame the fans for voicing their discontent, but Gill, who remains a non-executive director of United, insists there must be no panic at the club.

There was no immediate indication from the United hierarchy that Van Gaal would lose his job.

"I wanted to win this game and that's why I changed Cameron Borthwick-Jackson for Adnan Januzaj - that is a risk you take", BBC Sport quotes Van Gaal as saying.

The Daily Mail: 'Louis van Gaal is on the brink of losing his job after it emerged that Ed Woodward has canvassed senior players about the Manchester United manager's methods.

United are now five points behind Tottenham in the hunt for Champions League qualification with 15 matches to go.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman was delighted by his team's performance.

Fans have become disillusioned with the team's playing style, calling for more emphasis on attack while Van Gaal has adopted a more defensive approach.

Van Gaal was more forgiving of the fans' reaction: "They are right (to boo)".

"I am not going to sit here and say it is that attractive", added Gill, who confessed he went to the cinema on Saturday night instead of enduring highlights of the defeat to Southampton.

"They have also knowledge of football, of entertaining football, and you have to play football to entertain the fans".

"I can not answer that because normally I communicate everything with everybody so it is not for me to answer these kinds of questions", the former Ajax manager said when asked whether he feared for his future.

And there was even dissent in the ranks from the MUTV studios at Old Trafford.

"Set-pieces were their main threat and they had a couple of half-chances but [it's disappointing] to concede that way when we should have walked off with a goalless draw, because neither side deserved to win".

"We started this year very well but this is a setback", he said.

"It's another tough moment, for you and for us, but we must get through this".
