Rory McIlroy Really Doesn't Like Louis Van Gaal, And Has Confirmed Who He Wants To Succeed Him

Rory McIlroy Really Doesn't Like Louis Van Gaal, And Has Confirmed Who He Wants To Succeed Him
By Gavin Cooney

Despite the fact that Manchester United are in the FA Cup final, and are a single point outside of the top four - with City and Arsenal due to play each other tomorrow - the general assumption has been that a remarkably soporific season would end in Louis Van Gaal being sacked. The vultures have been circling Old Trafford for some time, with Jose Mourinho putting himself at the head of the pack to swoop in and profit from the rancid and fetid carcass of United's season.

United may yet end up having a successful season, but the style of play has been such that Van Gaal has long since been both detested and derided by the United faithful, and the majority of fans would be happy for the FA Cup final to be the Dutchman's final game in charge. This is an opinion shared by United fan Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy was on Newstalk's Off The Ball last night, and said that he would like to see Mourinho succeed Van Gaal:

Honestly, I'd like to see Mourinho there, to see him come in and give them a bit of a spark. Since Van Gaal has been there it's just been so flat. That's why I've enjoyed - maybe I'm guilty of jumping on the bandwagon- but I've enjoyed watching Leicester city so much this season because of the story, the way they play,and Ranieri's press conferences.

I really believe it's one of the best stories in sport, and I believe that many of the bigger clubs in the Premier League can learn from that. It's not about putting 200 million pounds in the transfer market every single summer and trying to get the best players, there is something more to it than that.

Mcilroy will be joined at the National Convention Centre on May 17th by Alex Ferguson and Alex Ferguson groupie James Nesbitt, with all proceeds going to the Rory Foundation. The Irish Open begins at the K Club the following Thursday, with Ferguson and Nesbitt hopefully hanging around to offer sage advice, as they did at the Masters last month.
