Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he will not resign after the goalless draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford.
It has been a disappointing month of December for the Red Devils as they registered no wins this month.
But the Dutchman was upbeat as he rejected claims that he will resign before the end of the year.
"For me, it [his future] is not an interesting subject because I cannot have any influence on that," van Gaal told BT Sport.
"I can only work with my players and you can see they are fighting for me. Even after this result the fans were applauding so I cannot say I'm very much concerned.
"In this football world you never know, but I'm fully confident in the board and my players.
"Will I resign? On the contrary.
"When the players can give such a performance with a lot of pressure, there is not any reason to resign for me. Maybe the media wants me to but I shall not resign.
"It's not a question of staying, it's a question of fulfilling my contract."
