Louis van Gaal: Not a happy man

Louis van Gaal: KNows he needs a good finish to the season

Under-pressure Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has labelled stories suggesting he had offered to resign as “awful and horrible.”

The Dutchman was reported to have offered his resignation after last weekend’s 1-0 home defeat to Southampton, but those reports were quickly retracted.

“I think I don’t have mentioned that ever,” Van Gaal said at Thursday’s press conference. “You make your own stories. Then I have to answer. I am not doing that. It is awful and horrible but you can write.

“It is the third time I am sacked and I am still sitting here. I am obliged to do that (attend press conferences). A lot of people ask in a disrespectful way. I have always faith.

“When you lose it is worse. I predicted before Southampton. Now I cannot lose any more because then for the fourth time I have been sacked. Then it might be the truth.”

Van Gaal, who has a 50 per cent win ratio with United, also reportedly offered to step down after the Boxing Day defeat to Stoke – a story which also was never verified. But he later claimed he would not step down from the role he took in May 2014.

“Will I resign? On the contrary. When the players can give such a performance with a lot of pressure, there is not any reason to resign for me,” Van Gaal said in December after the 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
