Ed Woodward stopped Louis Van Gaal From resigning

Louis van Gaal considered to resign from the job of Manchester United manager after the awful home defeat by Southampton on Saturday but the Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward advised him to go home and have a rethink and discuss his future with his family.

Louis Van Gaal has been under pressure especially from fans since the beginning of this campaign.

The under fire manager was thought to be sacked when he suffered before christmas and went eight games without a win, but he hung in there with a good start to the new year going 4 games unbeaten.

Saturday witnessed the return of LVG’s boring Manchester United team as they managed one shot on target through out the game.

Reports emerged that Louis Van Gaal offered to resign on Saturday after the defeat but was rejected by Ed Woodward and was told to go and discuss with his family.

LVG used the opportunity to celebrate his daughters birthday at his home town in Netherlands.

Van Gaal and Ed Woodward are expected to have a meeting upon his return to England to discuss the way forward for Manchester United and for the manager.

It only seems that Ed Woodward doesn’t want a change in the managerial duties in mid-season and he is trying to persuade the 64-year old to stay despite his admission that he has failed after Saturday’s defeat.

If Louis Van Gaal is sacked or walks away, Manchester United will have a lot of difficult options to choose as his replacement. Ryan Giggs is not seen as a spectacular coach, Mourinho isn’t ideal while Pep Guardiola won’t be available till the end if the season.

Nevertheless United fans needs Change!!!
