Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal could find out where his future lies this week after the club’s board held a meeting to discuss the Dutchman.
According to The Sun, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward went into the meeting at the club’s London HQ at 1pm on Tuesday afternoon and was due to finish a few hours later.
The Red Devils have remained tight-lipped over the future of their current boss, as the side continues to struggle under his stewardship.
After crashing out of the Champions League earlier this month, United have now lost back-to-back league games against Bournemouth and Norwich City which in turn has left Van Gaal’s position as coach under severe threat as they slipped out of the top four in the Premier League table.
While the club have yet to come out in support of him amid all the speculation, the former Ajax boss is expected to hold his press conference on Wednesday afternoon as usual ahead of the Boxing Day encounter with Stoke City.
Despite remaining defiant for the most part this season having faced criticism over his playing style with United struggling to score goals, Van Gaal appeared slightly defeated last week as he conceded that he was aware that his job was on the line.
A win over Stoke would certainly raise spirits at Old Trafford, but it remains to be seen whether or not it is enough for Van Gaal to save himself from an early dismissal.
