Louis van Gaal will be remembered as one of the more divisive managers throughout Manchester United’s history.
Whilst everybody loved Sir Alex Ferguson and loathed David Moyes, LVG found himself somewhere in between, providing acceptable results yet being relentlessly criticised for a meticulously laboured style of football.
Indeed, although the Dutchman was never far from a punditry swipe or raucous jeers from the Old Trafford faithful, he did get the Red Devils back into the Champions League (albeit somewhat briefly) and win the first major trophy of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era in the form of the FA Cup.
So amid news that Van Gaal has effectively retired – news that he has since attempted to water down to a year-long sabbatical followed by a final decision on his future – we asked Manchester United fans whether they viewed his two-year tenure at Old Trafford as a success.
Well, the results of our exclusive poll are now in and FootballFanCast can exclusively reveal, somewhat to our surprise, that 57% of those who voted believe LVG was successful at United. It makes you wonder whether the supporters actually wanted him to leave the club last summer, or whether the media simply forced him out.
