Stunning stat about Man United’s 2015-16 season may guarantee Louis van Gaal gets fired

Jose Mourinho might as well start investing in some property near Old Trafford, because after Manchester United’s performance against Sunderland he may find himself in a brand new home sooner than expected. Under current manager Louis van Gaal, Manchester United have now endured their worst start through 26 games (the two-thirds mark) since the formation of the Premier League.

To date, Man United have claimed just 41 points in 26 games – setting a new low mark for since the ill-fated 2013-14 season [per the Metro], when they claimed just 45 points. In addition, the 2-1 loss to Sunderland also put the club in danger of dropping from fifth place to sixth place should West Ham United get a win over Norwich City.

The poor start to the 2013-14 season ultimately led to the firing of manager David Moyes in that ill-fated season which resulted in a mere seventh place finish – their worst in Premier League history and lowest since the 1989-90 season.

Without a doubt, Louis van Gaal should not be considered safe no matter how much confidence the Glazer family and Ed Woodward express in the Dutch manager – especially with a hungry and eager Jose Mourinho ready to accept the biggest job in English football.
