I Cannot Predict My Manchester United Future

Louis van Gaal is thankful for Sir Alex Ferguson's support but remains well aware that failing to finish the season with a flourish will put his Manchester United future in jeopardy. It is a far cry from the successes enjoyed during Ferguson's tenure, but the former United boss this week defended the Dutchman and urged fans to be patient.

Van Gaal was thankful for that support, along with remarkable backing from the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, managing director Richard Arnold and director David Gill. He knows that support can only go so far, though, and is aware his position will come under further scrutiny if they fail to finish in the top four.

He said “I cannot say I will be here if we fail to make the top four because I think the board has to evaluate after the results of this year what they have to do, I think that is normal and I cannot predict that when I do not know the facts. First you have to see the facts, I have always said that. The results and also the titles or the Champions League positions, you can only say at the May 15 'yes, it is like that or like that. Then you have to evaluate the circumstances how I had to work in the season. An example of that is in the interview of Sir Alex. I am a rational person. I know that a manager of Manchester United has to win something, but I am still working on that

Van Gaal says every match counts now for United, who welcome Everton to Old Trafford in a Super Sunday clash buoyed by their victory at rivals Manchester City before the international break. United are sixth in the standings, just a point off fourth-placed City, and with an FA Cup quarter-final replay at West Ham to come on April 13.
