The Dutchman, known for his austere past, is under severe pressure from fans and players to change his style. And with Jose Mourinho and United showing mutual interest with each other, United boss Louis van Gaal really needs to consider things to continue in his post.
Who else but United skipper Wayne Rooney could start calling shots at his coach in the meeting? Senior players like Michael Carrick and Juan Mata also joined their captain. The players want their head coach to change his hard-line training methods immediately.
United have made a disastrous start this season. After a group league exit in the Champion’s League, the Red Devils are also reeling in the Premiership, which prompted legendary star Rio Ferdinand to slam Van Gaal last week. The fans are fuming with the results and the coach as well.
Wayne Rooney made a rallying call to his teammates to lift United from troubled waters. The Dutchman could be axed if United loses to Stokes City on Boxing Day.
United officials are keeping a tab on Mourinho, and they fear the Portuguese could get offers if they delay on him.
