Carlo Ancelotti To Replace Louis Van Gaal As Manchester United Manager?

 Experienced Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti turned down Manchester United for the Bayern Munich job after he was approached by the Old Trafford club’s chief executive Ed Woodward in November as replacement for under-fire Dutchman Louis Van Gaal.

According to the Daily Mail, the unemployed 59-year old tactician opted for the German champions as they made him ‘feel more wanted’ than United did and has since signed a three year deal at the Allianz Arena in December as replacement for the outgoing Spaniard Pep Guardiola.

Manchester United have had a season to forget so far as they languish in 5th spot with 33 points from 20 games, 3 points off North London club Tottenham in 4th place in addition to their exit from the UEFA Champions League in what was a relatively easy group thus putting manager Louis Van Gaal’s position under scrutiny during a run which saw his team go through an eight-game winless streak.

The pressure on Louis Van Gaal from the English media prompted him to demand an apology from journalists on what had been written about him but a run of 4 points in the last 2 Premier League games against Chelsea(0-0) and Swansea City(2-1) has soften the public outcry for his sack as Manchester United manager.
