Van Gaal leads United training as club deny resignation offer

Louis van Gaal has departed Manchester United' s Carrington training ground as speculation over his future continues.

Van Gaal's side are next in action in Friday's FA Cup fourth-round trip to Championship side Derby County.

Van Gaal who has often cited fans' backing as a prime factor in his hunger for the job has become increasingly disenchanted with his turbulent tenure at Old Trafford.

However, the Sun suggests that VAN GAAL will walk before he is pushed after he admitted that he "cannot fulfil" the expectations of United fans. In that eight-game spell they drew four and lost four fixtures, and suffered exit from the Champions League.

"It is an interesting question and it will be something Ryan will be thinking about and discussing with the powers that be within Manchester United", Gill added.

You have to play football to entertain the fans.

Van Gaal spoke of his frustrations following the Southampton match, in which he was booed off the pitch after his team were defeated 1-0.

One day somebody at United is giving an off-the-record briefing saying that LVG did offer his resignation; the next day, another source at the club is putting a story out saying that no such offer came.

Similar instances in Barcelona and Alkmaar show that Van Gaal may yet very well resign on his own.

A resolute Southampton repeated their success in the corresponding fixture last season when a Dusan Tadic goal gave them their first league victory at Old Trafford in 27 years. United then went on a run of improved form, with Van Gaal going so far after the win over Liverpool to claim that the Premier League title was a "possibility".

Woodward is exclusively responsible for deciding whether or not Van Gaal should remain in his position with the club, and will also be tasked with choosing a potential replacement for the Dutchman.
