Van Gaal unsure about the future


Louis van Gaal does not know whether he will be the manager of Manchester United at the start of next season.

Van Gaal is contracted to United until the end of the 2016-17 season but speculation is mounting that Jose Mourinho has been lined up to take over in the summer and missing out on a Champions League spot could leave officials with little choice but to replace the Dutchman.

United are currently fifth in the table, six points off fourth-placed Manchester City, and Van Gaal admits he does not know whether failure to qualify for the Champions League would cost him his job.

"It's not a question for me, it's a question for the board of Manchester United, you have to put it to them," Van Gaal told his weekly press conference. "I have a contract for three years and you know that."

Van Gaal's future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months but the club have opted to remain silent and the manager insists he does not expect officials to publically back him.

"I said many, many times that not all the media, but a lot of them are inventing stories. You don't have to answer to invented stories. I agree with this policy of the club," he stated.
