Louis van Gaal has received support for extending his time at Manchester United from an unlikely source – Park Ji sung.
The South Korean midfielder has not played for United in several years now, but he remains out of the Red Devils as the Asian ambassador. He has expressed his views about Van Gaal on the verge of being sacked. The Dutchman has had an enormous amount of money to spend at Old Trafford. However, the activities of the transfer market have not necessarily translated into a better squad. Many feel that the team continues to be on the decline especially as they struggle to score goals.
José Mourinho has already been lined up as a replacement according to several reports. The Portuguese boss has also reportedly signed a precontract agreement with the club. One of the most experienced managers in world football, Mourinho has won trophies wherever he has been. After having just failed to bring Pep Guardiola, it appears that the club has decided to go with a trusted name in English football. However, Ji sung feels that Van Gaal needs more time to settle into English football. The Dutchman only has 12 months left to run on his contract after the summer.

Morgan Schneiderlin believes that striker Marcus Rashford has the ability to become a star at Manchester United.
The 18-year-old came through the ranks at the club but few would have imagined his astronomical rise to stardom in the matter of a few weeks. The young striker made his debut for the Red Devils only towards the end of February. However, he grabbed headlines almost immediately after scoring twice in the 5-1 victory over FC Midtjylland. This was immediately followed by two goals and an assist in the 3-2 win against Arsenal.
These games quickly catapulted him to stardom and he has never been on the wane since then. Even though there were suggestions that he should be dropped after going without a goal for five matches, manager Louis Van Gaal kept his faith in the player and started him for the crucial Manchester derby last weekend. Rashford returned to scoring ways after a 16 minute goal against their arch rivals. The boy from Manchester was scoring against one of United’s biggest rivals and this has seen him adored by the supporters. Schneiderlin joined United only in the summer but he has already seen enough of Rashford to suggest that he could become the next star at the club.
Lyon suffered an embarrassing 4-2 defeat in front of their home supporters against Montpelier with defender Rafael Da Silva contributing to one of those goals conceded with a horrible back pass.
The former Manchester United defender has been criticised for making individual errors too often in the game. It was one of the reasons behind his departure from Old Trafford, but it appears that he may not have learnt his ways since that move. This was the third consecutive defeat for Lyon and it puts manager Hubert Fournier under a lot of pressure. The manager said after the game that this was the worst defeat in his career.
Such was the manner of Lyon’s defending that speculation has arose claiming that Hubert Fournier’s position at the club is under threat.Fournier has been the manager of the French club since October 2014. He has vast experience of the French league from his time at Reims. Only this experience could save him at the moment given that Lyon are fast slipping down the table. Following this defeat, the club are no longer challenging for the title. In fact, they are fighting to stay closer to the Champions League qualification spots with the likes of Saint Etienne and Nice closing the gap.

It’s all lies.”Messi said as he shut down all of the recent rumors that have been spreading concerning his future with Barcelona.
