Johannesburg, Feb.27 (ANI): Manchester United under-fire manager Louis van Gaal has described constant speculation about his possible departure from the Old Trafford club as ‘absolute scandal’ and ‘ridiculous.’
The Dutchman also accused his critics of unfairly targeting him for United’s struggling season and not criticising players, the Mirror reported.
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been heavily linked with the managerial role at Old Trafford after United repeated poor performances and after the club’s early exit from the Champions League.
United briefly reversed their slide when they comfortably defeated their Danish opponents Midtjylland 5-1 to progress to the next stage of the Europa League 6-3 on aggregate on Friday.
United are currently fifth in the Premier League standings and will next face title contenders Arsenal on Saturday. (ANI)
