Official: Manchester United sacked Louis Van Gaal

The Dutchman has been removed from his position at the head of the Old Trafford club after failing to deliver Champions League football for the 2015/16 campaign.

Manchester United have confirmed that manager Louis van Gaal has been sacked, paving the way for Jose Mourinho to take charge at Old Trafford.

Speculation had been rife for several months that the Dutchman would depart the Red Devils, and though he claimed the FA Cup with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace after extra time, his failure to qualify for the Champions League ultimately proved his undoing.
