Van Gaal tightlipped on United future after Southampton shock

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was tightlipped about his future after defeat to Southampton.

United could stomach another season without Champions League football in a financial sense, but every defeat or insipid display deals a blow to the club’s prestige and standing in the game.

Van Gaal knows that too, but he does not appear to be aware of whether his job is now in serious jeopardy.

“I cannot answer that because normally I communicate everything with everybody so it is not for me to answer these kinds of questions,” the former Ajax manager said when asked whether he feared for his future.
