Van Gaal got what he de­served, says Gul­lit

The African - - POT POURRI -

MANCH­ESTER United were right to sack Louis van Gaal (pic­tured) af­ter the club failed to qual­ify for next sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League, ac­cord­ing to his fel­low Dutch­man Ruud Gul­lit.

Van Gaal, who guided his side to a fifth-place fin­ish in the Pre­mier League this sea­son, lost his job two days af­ter United ended a three-year tro­phy drought by beat­ing Crys­tal Palace 2-1 in the FA Cup fi­nal at Wem­b­ley.

“A lot of things were his own fault,” for­mer Chelsea and New­cas­tle United man­ager Gul­lit told Bri­tish me­dia.

“Man United have a cer­tain sta­tus ... no Cham­pi­ons League and that’s very im­por­tant for them.

“Foot­ball is hard and foot­ball is not fair. So you know the rules if you go to big clubs and you don’t pro­duce, you’re out,” added Gul­lit.

For­mer Chelsea and In­ter Milan man­ager Jose Mour­inho agreed per­sonal terms to re­place Van Gaal at United be­fore sign­ing a three-year con­tract.
