Endlessly speculations about the future of Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United and the coming in of Jose Mourinho have gotten the Dutch tactician livid.
Speaking after Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea, LVG queried journalists for ‘making up’ stories that United are in talks with Mourinho to have him as his replacement.
Van Gaal asked a reporter: “You’ve spoken with [chief executive] Ed Woodward?
“Why does the club have to deny it, when you are creating stories?”
Van Gaal, 64, said last month that journalists had “sacked” him three times already this season and grew irritable by further questions over his immediate future.
He is out of contract at the end of next season and the draw at Stamford Bridge left United six points short of the top four.
“Okay. So you didn’t speak to Ed Woodward, not with [Manchester United owners] the Glazers and you are inventing a story,” Van Gaal said.
“And then I have to answer this question. I don’t answer this question. And I shall repeat myself every week.
“Now I have to say that you [a reporter] are getting the sack tomorrow. What is your name? Then I can announce your name also.”
