Manchester United have reportedly improved their security this week as fans finally turned on luckless manager Louis van Gaal, according to The Sun.
Extra security guards were placed around the dugout during Saturday’s shock 2-1 defeat at home to Norwich, as tempers in the stands continued to fray.
There had been serious concerns that some fans would attempt to get at the Dutchman, and the beefed up security team will remain in place should he still be in charge of the club by the time they meet Chelsea on December 28.
Fans verbally abused the 64-year-old during the Norwich game, and let him have it again as he walked along the touchline at the final whistle.
The added safety measures only further highlight the desperate situation at Old Trafford, as van Gaal hangs on by a thread with Jose Mourinho now being heavily tipped to take his place in the near future.
