Manchester United SACK Louis van Gaal with Jose Mourinho set to take charge
Manchester United have sacked Louis van Gaal just two days after the Dutchman led them to victory over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final. Van Gaal has been made to pay for United's poor Premier League campaign and will be replaced by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho. His Dutch coaching staff - including United assistant coach Albert Stuivenberg and goalkeeper coach Frans Hoek - have also left the club with immediate effect.
