Van Gaal on Manchester United Mourinho talks: Not always an honest world

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal concedes Jose Mourinho may be in talks about his job.

Van Gaal says there is no honour among managers even though he still has nearly 18 months left on his contract at Old Trafford.

Asked if he had spoken to Mourinho to clarify the situation, Van Gaal said: “No. In the football world that doesn’t happen.”

“I was chairman of the coaches federation in the Netherlands and we had a rule that you can never talk with a club without informing the present manager.”

“But sometimes it has been broken by people and by managers. It is always like that. It is not always an honest world.”
