Van Gaal leads United training as club deny resignation offer

But Gill said the United legend might need to ply his trade elsewhere before assuming the top job at Old Trafford, having never previously managed a club side.

Despite intense speculation over what the future holds for Van Gaal, Sky sources understand no conference call took place on Sunday among the club's hierarchy.

As soon as Charlie Austin nodded in his 87th-minute victor, some United fans started hurling abuse at Van Gaal in the home dugout.

All this is conjecture, however, but the conflicting information coming out of Old Trafford and Carrington suggests that, as Richard Keys might have put it, there are some dark forces at work within the Red Devils.

"They (the fans) are right, I can not deny that. They have, or they had, great expectations of me, and I can not fulfil them, so I am very frustrated".

The first decision Woodward should make is to give van Gaal the dignity to resign on his own.

Van Gaal was Woodward's appointment following the disappointing reign of Moyes, but his time in charge has been dogged by a perception that, for the money he has spent on transfers, United is playing boring football below its lofty station.

According to the Guardian, Van Gaal, 64, was said to have told executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward he would be prepared after the defeat to Southampton.

Should Manchester United sack Louis van Gaal? In that eight-game spell they drew four and lost four fixtures, and suffered exit from the Champions League.

"I know that everyone, from the owners and Louis Van Gaal and his team, is working extremely hard to turn that around".

Some outlets are also reporting that Van Gaal offered to quit during United's dismal end to 2015, in which they failed to win a game from November 21 to January 2.
