Gary Neville: Man United Should Not Sack Louis van Gaal Even if Champions League Qualification Is Not Secured

Man United have a tough schedule of Premier League games coming up in March.

Manchester United can’t afford to sack Louis van Gaal, regardless of where the club finishes at the end of the season, according to club legend Gary Neville.

Van Gaal was given the clear task of getting Man United back into the Champions League following David Moyes’ sacking for failing to do exactly that last season.

The Red Devils looked on course to reaching their goal until the recent defeat to Swansea City which allowed Arsenal to leapfrog them into third.

Liverpool now are also closing in on Van Gaal’s men which has led to some questioning as to what Man United would do should they fail to qualify for Europe’s premier club competition for a second season in succession.

For Neville the answer is simple, stick with the Dutchman and establish stability.

“Louis van Gaal should not be sacked,” Neville stressed (via Independent)

“It would be a terrible season for Man United and Louis van Gaal. He would probably say it was a big failure because he knows his job this season.

“He has to get in the Champions League but, on the other hand, if he didn’t, no, you can’t just sack a manager one year and then sack another manager the year after. Where do you go from there?”

Neville was extremely vocal about the way David Moyes was relieved of his duties and is adamant that the club must stick to tradition.
