Louis van Gaal makes Manchester City claim that will leave fans SHOCKED

With Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho reportedly not on speaking terms, the FC crew assess the Frenchman's future at Man United and whether he has been misjudged at Old Trafford.

Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has ended his long-running feud with Jose Mourinho.

Towards Mourinho, the Dutchman took a more sympathetic tone.

Van Gaal also named Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola the best current manager in the Premier League, adding that he plays a style at City that Van Gaal aspired to play at United.

But Van Gaal has now buried the hatchet by saying: "I am not disappointed with Jose Mourinho. Every coach wants to train Manchester United, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world", LVG added.

Insisting he does not blame Mourinho, Van Gaal instead takes aim at Ed Woodward - the club's executive vice-chairman - for his handling of the situation. "Then you win the FA Cup and are still fired".

'Pep Guardiola is for me now the best coach of the Premier League, ' he said. "Pep has made City a machine".

"Jose wanted that too and was given the opportunity to do so although he was sacked when he was 13th with a fantastic side like Chelsea". He shows a football that I would have liked to play at Manchester United.

"But he has better players for it. I am not accusing him of any wrongdoing but, on the other hand, my team had just come fourth". "I needed more time for this process, which I unfortunately didn't get".

"I don't think it's correct when a CEO says we are totally happy with you and the media doesn't believe him".
