Van Gaal did not offer to resign

A poisonous atmosphere took hold at Old Trafford on Saturday after Van Gaal's side lost 1-0 to Southampton.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal did not offer to resign at the weekend, despite reports to the contrary. Much of the blame has been placed on Van Gaal's shoulders, who has failed to ingratiate himself with supporters, and has been the frequent subject of speculation regarding his potential sacking.

After this past week of Barclays Premier League games, Manchester United have found themselves outside of the top four on the standings this season, once again. Why Ed Woodward has chosen not to fire his current manager this late into the season is baffling.

Juan Mata says he fully understands Manchester United fans' frustrations - as the players are feeling exactly the same.

Asked whether he has the appetite to continue at Old Trafford, Van Gaal responded with: "This question I shall never answer to you".

The Guardian claimed that Van Gaal returned to the Netherlands on Sunday where he was asked by Woodward to discuss his position with his family.

So rest assured, United fans.

Further talks are planned in the coming days, with United unsure whether Van Gaal will have changed his stance in deciding the time has come for him to walk away. "They have - or they had - great expectations of me and I can not fulfill them".

The Old Trafford torment has fuelled reports of meetings with Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho writing a letter to United's leaders.

It is also believed there are no plans to have one on Monday with the focus on Friday's FA Cup tie at Derby County, a tournament United have not won for 12 years.

Gill worked alongside former manager Sir Alex Ferguson during a trophy-laden period in the club's history, and has conceded that current results and performances have not matched expectations.
