LVG: Man Utd board will judge me

Dutchman unsure of future at Old Trafford

Louis Van Gaal has admitted that he is unsure whether he will remain in charge of Manchester United next season.

The Dutchman was speaking after a last-minute Anthony Martial winner ensured his side beat Everton 2-1 and progressed into the FA Cup final.

However, with Utd struggling to qualify for next season's Champions League, the style of football often quite boring and having suffered a group-stage exit from Europe this campaign, speculation has been rife all season that Van Gaal will be sacked, with Jose Mourinho tipped tp replace him.

But Van Gaal is adamant that no decision has been made and that it is the club board who will have the final say.

"I am not looking beyond this competition and FA Cup, because we live in the present," he said. “For the future, I will discuss that with my board and others.

“It is not for me to judge – it is for the board of Manchester United.

“I think in the first half we were the better team. We scored and created more chances, although we could have finished more.

“In the second half I think the referee changed the match.

“I have to say I think it was a penalty [David de Gea saved Romelu Lukaku's resulting spot-kick] – I don’t argue. But I argue over 50-50 duels that were not in our favour – when you do that over 10 or 15 minutes in a row, you have a big influence in the game.

“After that we scored the own-goal and it was 1-1, and then you saw we were showing our spirit. It was unbelievable.

“We were out of the game, but then back in it, and then Anthony scores a fantastic goal.

“We are lucky we scored in the last minute but we deserved to win."
