Man Utd ready to sack Van Gaal if they lose to Shrewsbury

Manchester United could make a major club decision tonight if they fail to secure a win against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup.

The Red Devils have had a season to forget so far but the Old Trafford hierarchy has been extremely patient with manager Louis Van Gaal.

Previously it was thought that Manchester United will not sack Van Gaal unless it is mathematically impossible to qualify for the Champions League, but after the humiliating defeat against Midtjylland in the Europa League, that situation has changed.

Daily Star have claimed that Ed Woodward might be forced to pull the trigger if Van Gaal fails to guide his side to a win tonight.

The FA Cup is probably Manchester United’s best chance of winning a trophy this season. The likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham are already out of the competition and Arsenal could head out as well if they do not win against Hull.

There are reports that the Old Trafford outfit could appoint Jose Mourinho at the end of the season. The Portuguese manager is out of a job after being sacked by Chelsea a few months ago.
