Manchester United supporters called for Louis van Gaal to be sacked after the defeat to Sunderland
Manchester United fans took to social media to call for Jose Mourinho to replace Louis van Gaal as manager.
Supporters were left fuming after the Reds’ dire 2-1 defeat to Sunderland, leaving the Dutchman’s side six points off the Champions League spots having played a game more than their top four rivals.
Van Gaal admitted that a top four finish would be difficult after the loss at the Stadium of Light.
United’s total of 41 points after 26 games is their lowest ever in the Premier League.
Odds on Mourinho to replace Van Gaal at Old Trafford plummeted following the defeat and United fans were quick to call for the former boss to come in and save United’s season.
Reports that United and former Chelsea manager Mourinho have reached an agreement on a deal are untrue, however M.E.N. Sport understands communication between both parties has taken place in recent weeks.
