Louis van Gaal ‘to keep United job’, Mourinho snubbed again

Manchester United are set to retain Louis van Gaal as manager after deciding Jose Mourinho is not the right man to take the club forward, according to a report.
The Sunday Mirror claims United bosses believe Mourinho’s failure to nurture young players makes him unsuitable for a job that includes reviving the club’s ailing youth system.
The report says Van Gaal will keep his job and see out the final year of his contract before handing the reins over to Ryan Giggs.
The Ducthman is expected to stay despite a desperate season that has seen United suffer a Champions League group stage exit and fall limply away from a very winnable Premier League title race.
Van Gaal suggested on Saturday he would stay, saying: “There are a lot of players coming to Manchester United next season because they know I give them a chance.”
A recent upturn in fortunes, highlighted by the spectacular emergence of 18-year-old Marcus Rashford, has renewed optimism at Old Trafford, with Van Gaal praised for bringing through academy products including Jesse Lingardand Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.
The club believe Mourinho’s lack of interest in using such players would further damage a system that produced the likes of Giggs, Paul Scholes andDavid Beckham.
United’s youth teams has suffered in recent years, with neighbours City luring talented youngsters with incentives such as paid-for private education.
