The tide is dramatically turning in the English media this Sunday regarding the next managerial moves for Manchester United.
All of a sudden, after weeks and months of ramming stories that Jose Mourinho will replace Louis van Gaal at the Theatre of Dreams, the papers are changing their tune.
Over in the Sunday Times, the suggestion was raised this weekend that the impact of Marcus Rashford and, the newly dubbed, Louis’ Lads, may have the effect of keeping LVG in his job. Remember, the Dutch coach is under contract at United until the end of next season.
The Mirror, however, go a step further, reporting that the United board have indeed rejected the notion that Jose Mourinho will take over their club.
Instead, the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton are leaning towards Ryan Giggs: a man who is just at the start of his managerial voyage, and who lacks any real long term experience.
Jose Mourinho has resigned himself to the fact that United are sticking with a succession plan that will see Ryan Giggs eventually take over from Van Gaal.
And the Dutchman, who has been under intense criticism several times this season as his Reds have struggled, hinted on Saturday that he has already been told he WILL complete the final year of his contract next season.
