In the summer of 2012, Manchester United announced the appointment of Dutch tactician as the helms man of their football affairs after the team’s horrendous spell under the watch of David Moyes. However, the recent show-offs of the Red Devils means Van Gaal tactical prowess is in doubt and United are already looking to replace him with Carlo Ancelotti.
There have been complains by the players of the training methods of United and the Dutch tactician has also been accused of a boring and insipid style of play by the fans. To compound his problem, United were knocked out of the Champions league yesterday and that has further casted doubt over his future.
Carlo Ancelotti has been largely successful in all of the clubs he’s coached – he’s won the Champions league a couple of times and won the League in France, Italy, Spain and England. The Italy tactician has revealed that he would refuse a deal to move to Manchester United.
He told the Independent, “Of course, for every manager, they would all think of managing Manchester United,” He further said he will love to return to the League and United might take advantage of his situation to grant him his desired returned as he has a better pedigree than Van Gaal in club football. “But, the Premier League is the best in the sense of atmosphere, ambience. It is also competitive, so I would like to come back, especially for the atmosphere.”
United are placed in fourth position on the Premier League log and they have struggled to score goals despite the amount Van Gaal spent in the transfer market.
