Man United put in an abysmal display at Old Trafford are were beaten by the Canaries thanks to goals from Cameron Jerome and Alexander Tettey.
United’s form has been awful for some time now and the result against Norwich felt like the final nail in the coffin for van Gaal. The Dutchman was downbeat following the match.
“I can say a lot of things but every word is too much I think. You can see what confidence is doing to the players,” van Gaal said.
“Now it’s very important that everybody sticks together, but that was not good enough today. We have to win against Norwich and we know that.”
Considering the amount of money van Gaal has spent since taking over at Old Trafford, results simply haven’t been up to scratch.
The players look unmotivated and fans have turned against him. With Jose Mourinho available and Pep Guardiola set to leave Bayern Munich in the future, it appears United will have to seriously consider if van Gaal is the right man to take the club forward. For the first real time, it really looks like he isn’t.
