Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has offered his thoughts on the latest round of speculation over his future at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman’s future very much remains under the spotlight at Old Trafford, with the club’s place in the FA Cup semi-finals doing little to disguise what has, so far, been a vastly disappointing season at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho has been heavily tipped to take charge at Old Trafford this summer after admitting he’s ready to start work on a new job in July, but speaking at a media conference to preview Saturday’s clash with Aston Villa, Van Gaal said of the speculation: “I don’t discuss that [my future] with you.
“You can ask what is happening with me. I don’t discuss it.
“It’s not my problem.
“I read only about my position in the media, not other manager’s positions.”
Van Gaal did concede he has become frustrated at United’s failure to develop any consistency this season, the FA Cup quarter-final win at West Ham coming on the back of a 3-0 defeat at Tottenham.
“We try to do that,” said Van Gaal. “Consistency is very important,of course.
“The players, the manager and his staff have been frustrated because we were not consistent this season. But there are circumstances existing [to prevent that from happening].
“When you have to line up every week with another team because of injuries, it’s difficult to make a consistent team building process.
“But still we are in the race for first position in the Premier League and in the FA Cup,so I’m happy we can do that.”
