Louis van Gaal attacks critics and cuts press conference short when asked about his future


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal decided to cut his press conference short after getting upset with questions related to his future.

According to recent reports, the Dutchman will be sacked if the Red Devils don't win their next game away at Stoke City.

But the 64-year-old told reporters that he is only focused on Saturday's game before leaving the press conference room.

"Has anybody in this room not a feeling to apologise to me?" van Gaal asked.

"Nobody has that feeling? That, I was wondering. I think I was already sacked, I have read. My colleague [replacement] was here already.

"What do you think happens with my wife, or kids or grandchildren. Or the fans of Manchester United? Or my friends? They have called me.

"A lot of times. And also Arsene Wenger is saying something about that. Do you think I want to talk with the media now? Only because of the Premier League rule, I have to talk with you. I see that when I say something you use my words in your context.

"I want to say, only, that I have tried to lift the confidence of my players and have done everything this week - meetings, a Christmas lunch, a speech - and I feel the warmth and support of everybody in Carrington.

"I didn't feel that in the media. I can imagine that you can write about that subject. We are not in a good position but four weeks ago we were first and in four weeks we can be again.

"You have to stick by the facts and when I get calls off Alex Ferguson and David Gill and Ed Woodward because you are creating something what is not good and not being the facts.

"Now I have to answer questions. I don't think I want to do it. I am focused on Stoke City and help my players, I wish you a merry Christmas and maybe a happy new year when I see you. Enjoy the wine and a mince pie. Goodbye."
