The Times’ James Ducker and the Daily Mail’s Ian Ladyman have both revealed on Thursday that Manchester United fans will have to wait a little longer to have their next manager installed.
Louis van Gaal will be the next permanent successor to David Moyes, however the latest news is that Old Trafford will only ratify the appointment at the start of next week. By all accounts, that means Monday.
On the slight delay,The Times’ Ducker added the comment “No issue, just few minor bits to resolve”.
Ryan Giggs was pictured leaving a hotel in Holland on Wednesday after having reportedly met with Van Gaal before he jets off to Brazil to lead Holland at the World Cup.
