Gary Lineker takes to Twitter amid reports Manchester United have sacked Louis van Gaal

Gary Lineker has reacted on Twitter to news of Louis van Gaal’s imminent sacking by Manchester United.

The 64-year-old is expected to receive his marching orders on Monday despite leading the Red Devils to FA Cup glory at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

United eased to a 2-1 extra-time victory over Crystal Palace to end their three-year trophy drought since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Axed Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is favourite to replace Van Gaal in the Old Trafford hot seat.

And Match of the Day host Lineker is clearly expecting the outspoken 53-year-old to succeed Van Gaal at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal was appointed as David Moyes’s permanent successor in May 2014 after United finished in seventh place in their first season without Ferguson at the helm.

Mourinho led Chelsea to their fourth Premier League title in May 2015 before he was sacked in December following a woeful start to the defence of their crown.
