Van Gaal speculation ‘disrespectful,’ says Wenger
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says rumours about Manchester United boss, Louis van Gaal’s position are “disrespectful”.
Dutchman Van Gaal’s future at Old Trafford is reported to be in doubt after a run of six games without a win.
Jose Mourinho, who was sacked as Chelsea manager last week, has been linked with the Old Trafford job.
“I do not want anyone to lose their job. My personal feelings on that front is that it is always sad,” said Wenger.
‘I have huge respect for Van Gaal’
Van Gaal, 64, admitted after Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Norwich that he was “worried” about his position, while former United player and coach Phil Neville said the club faces “a reality check”, though he added they should stand by the Dutchman.
Defender Phil Jones has lent his support to his manager saying he was doing a “terrific” job at the club.
Frenchman Wenger, 66, added: “I do not want to go into a world of speculation.
