Manchester United will not unveil Louis van Gaal, or potentially somebody else, as the new manager until after the end of the season.
Last week, the press was clearly briefed that an announcement was imminent as every major media outlet reported the same story about Van Gaal being unveiled this week.
Today, in a similar fashion, every outlet has revealed the decision will not be completed until after the end of the season.
It was expected that Van Gaal wanted a deal to be completed before today because of his commitments to the Holland national team but it has proved not to be the case.
The news will leave United fans with itchy fingers as we all wanted a deal wrapped up as soon as possible.
Maybe United has a dastardly plan to unveil the new manager the morning after Manchester City. Liverpool or Chelsea win the Premier League so as to bring the focus back on United? That would be spectacular.
