Louis van Gaal departed Manchester United's London team hotel on Sunday morning after the club's FA Cup triumph and was greeted by a number of supporters and journalists.
When asked by a Sky Sports reporter if he would stop to comment on his future, Van Gaal refused and said: "It's over."
Given the brevity of the comment, it was not clear whether that meant the Dutchman had been told his time at United was at an end.
Jose Mourinho, strongly tipped to replace Van Gaal at Old Trafford, refused to comment about the job when asked about it at ringside ahead of David Haye's bout in London on Saturday night.
Louis van Gaal played down speculation that he will leave his role of manager of Manchester United just hours after winning the FA Cup.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal believes lifting the FA Cup at Wembley will do more for his side than qualifying for the Champions League.
United finished fifth in the Premier League, meaning they lose their seat at European football's top table next term, but Van Gaal thinks victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday will help galvanize his squad.
Arsenal's Arsene Wenger has previously described finishing in the top four as the equivalent of a trophy, but the Dutchman thinks cup glory brings a different kind of excitement to players and fans.
United have not laid their hands on silverware since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013 and Van Gaal is eager to change that.
Qualification is not a title...a title is the FA Cup, the championship. It is important for the players. They can look at and hold the cup, that's an exciting moment and especially here in England because the FA Cup is a big title.
Also for Manchester United it is a big title. I have read that the club's last FA Cup was 2004 so that's a long time ago. The fans are more concerned about the title than I because the title for the fans is fantastic. We want to give it (to them).
