Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is apparently once again in danger of losing his job after appearing to have risen out of a slump in results over Christmas, according to the Daily Star.
The Red Devils underwent a winless streak of eight games before the new year, but the Dutchman was told that he would be given until the end of the season to improve results and the performances that had garnered so much criticism from fans and pundits alike.
However, following United’s narrow victory over Sheffield United in the FA Cup this weekend could see the Glazer’s change their mind and give him the boot early.
Van Gaal’s side didn’t get their first shot on goal until the 70th minute against the League One side, and Chief Executive Ed Woodward was well aware of the boos and jeers the side received from his position in the director’s box.
The side were booed off at both half time and full time, despite Wayne Rooney’s late penalty sealing their passage through to the next round of the cup, and with crunch meetings with Newcastle and Liverpool coming up, a similar vein of form could see the club make an early change.
