Louis van Gaal Didn't Offer To Quit Man Utd Post

Manchester United have denied Louis van Gaal offered to resign following Saturday's 1-0 home loss to Southampton - with reports on Tuesday suggesting his position at the club won't be reviewed until the summer.

Boos rang around Old Trafford following the final whistle of the Barclays Premier League contest on Saturday as Van Gaal endured what he later described as the worst reaction he has heard from supporters yet during his time in charge.

Manchester United under pressure boss Louis van Gaal had more to add to his damaged reputation and worries as he cheekily patted a journalist at a press conference before he left for Holland on an undisclosed reason for the weekend.

Some outlets are also reporting that Van Gaal offered to quit during United's dismal end to 2015, in which they failed to win a game from November 21 to January 2.

"I'm very disappointed that I can not reach the expectations of the fans", he said.

In his absence, club chief executive Ed Woodward held talks with a number of senior players in the squad to assess the situation and identify where they believe things have gone wrong this season.

Who Manchester United fans would love to see as boss is Ryan Giggs, but chances are very unlikely as he does not have the experience to handle the job.

The Red Devils are five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the race to secure a place in next season's Champions League.

"Van Gaal will still think he can achieve things this season, despite all the struggles, and sacking the manager now would be effectively writing the season off". They have won just two of their last ten league matches, but teh 64-year-old was unable to offer any explanation as to why United were playing so poorly.
