Van Gaal: It's over

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 coy on Manchester United future

Louis van Gaal played down speculation that he will leave his role of manager of Manchester United just hours after winning the FA Cup.

Asked whether he would still be at Old Trafford next season, the 64-year-old Dutchman said: "I have signed for three years, so you never know".

Rumours have mounted in recent weeks that former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho would replace the former Barcelona and Ajax coach in Manchester at the end of the season.

Speaking after his team's 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace at Wembley, van Gaal said he was "proud" to have won the club's latest major silverware since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

In a later press conference, van Gaal said he didn't want to discuss the prospect of leaving the club with the press who "sacked him already".
