Manchester, LONDON:Manchester United has sacked manager Louis van Gaal with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho waiting in the wings to take over.
Van Gaal led United to the FA Cup win on Saturday but it wasn’t enough to save his job after he failed to qualify for the Champions League.
The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona boss won 52 per cent of his matches while at Manchester United but received criticism throughout the season for his style of play.
Failing to deliver despite spending £258.7m on players during his two years reigns are at Old Trafford is also believed to have intrigued his dismissal.
His imminent successor Jose Mourinho is expected to be confirmed on Tuesday after the 53-year-old Portuguese met with United’s hierarchy.
