Tension grows as LVG looks to be under more and more pressure at United and as Paul Scholes said: “The players looked bored themselves. There’s no spirit, there’s nobody having a go at each other, there’s no smiling, there’s no entertainment. I think even Van Gaal on the bench looks bored, but he’ll come out and say he’s happy.” Manchester’s manager did have some strange reactions during the past couple of weeks and it all started with his feud with the press when he stormed out after feeling insulted by rumors that he is going to be sacked. If then he showed some kind of attitude, now everything around him lacks drive.
According to the BBC Paul Scholes condemns this attitude that is ruining the Manchester spirit. To be fair, who wouldn’t be unhappy after seeing their favorite team struggling until the 90th minute to get a goal with Sheffield United who are 9th in the League One standings. Van Gaal’s current situation got even more complicated when Guardiola announced he will be moving to the UK to manage a Premier League team. Rumors that the Spaniard will be taking over Manchester United have been going around and have been putting pressure on the Dutchman who was already tense after the whole Mourinho coming to Old Trafford deal. The thing that United fans can be sure of is that LVG is no quitter and he has faced tough times before so don’t expect him to leave Old Trafford before his contract ends.
