Louis van Gaal slams Man United boss by claiming club connection has saved him from the sack

Van Gaal has this week offered a frank assessment of his former club and passed a not so complimentary verdict on current boss Solskjaer.

The Dutchman feels Solskjaer has the additional protection of being a club legend and will simply not be axed by United midway through a season... though could finally come in for a rude awakening at the end of the current campaign. 

"Solskjaer is an ex-player, so they will not sack him as quickly as someone else,' said Van Gaal of the Norwegian, as report the Mirror.

'United won't sack a manager during the season especially Solskjaer. I see all the stories about Solskjaer and his future in the media.

'But they waited with sacking me until the end of the season and that could happen to him,' he added.

After replacing the doomed David Moyes, Van Gaal believed he was finally getting things on track at Old Trafford before the axe came swinging down.

Now, drawing upon his own experience, Van Gaal believes Solskjaer could go the same way.

He added: 'They waited with sacking me until the end of the season and that could happen to him,' before then going on to slam United's approach in the recent goalless stalemate derby draw with local rivals Manchester City and boldly claiming they performed like 'servants'.

'All Man United did was defend with ten men,' Van Gaal said. 'Everyone knows my relationship with Pep Guardiola, who is angry with me because I challenged him in my last book.

But I enjoyed watching City more than United. I have far more sympathy for City than for United.

'Honestly, United were just defending and hoping they can do a quick hit on the counter.

'United just defend and put a couple of players up front who can run 100 metres in 9 seconds. Is that a world record?
