Under-fire Man United boss keen to finish contract at Old Trafford

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is expected to remain at the club and play out the remaining 18 months of his current contract, Daily Star reports.

The 64-year-old was earlier linked with an exit from Old Trafford after picking up a terrible run of results in both the Premier League and in Europe.

His side have gone six matches without a single victory, with one of them being the 3-2 defeat to Wolfsburg in the Champions League where they were knocked out of the competition.

It was believed that Van Gaal is already considering an exit if his side fail to win their next two fixtures against Stoke City and Chelsea, but the Dutchman looks to have ruled out that possibility.

Sources out of the club claim that he will not resign from the job despite the performance of the squad, meaning United may have to sack him if results continue to go against them.

“It isn’t just about the money. The manager still firmly believes in himself and his ability to turn the situation round,” they said.

“There is no chance of him standing down. He’s a proud man who wants the chance to see the job through. Quitting would be like admitting failure.”
