Former Manchester United midfielder Arnold Muhren has advised embattled manager Louis van Gaal to resign and leave Old Trafford.
The former Bayern Munich manager has a contract with the Red Devils that will end in the summer of 2017 but has come under increasing pressure this season as United have failed to hit expected heights – crashing out of the UEFA Champions League and losing their first leg tie in the Europa round of 32 against Danish side FC Midtjylland.
The former Netherlands star was asked by Omnisport if his fellow country man should resign as Manchester United boss, he said: “Yeah…but he says he doesn’t want to do that. I think he would see that as a big loss.
“They let him spend a lot of money. People shouldn’t forget that he also sold some players. But besides that…a club like United should play for trophies all the time.
“There were several moments this year that they didn’t play well and the results were bad as well. If you don’t play well but you win, they think ‘OK but at least we have three points’. But they don’t play good.
“It’s also not a stable team. There were so many changings during the season.”
Manchester United will be involved in FA Cup action on Monday against Shrewsbury Town.
