With the 2-1 loss to Sunderland in the English Premier League (EPL), Manchester United manager Loius van Gaal looks at very gloomy days ahead as Red Devil fans are calling for his ouster and wants Gary Neville at the helm.

Manchester United suffered the stunning setback on Valentine’s Day, which definitely brought heartaches to fans of one of the most decorated teams in England.

Calls for Louis van Gaal ouster went viral in social media and are calling in the management to bring in former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, who is managing Valencia in the La Liga, in an effort to relive the glory days of the squad.

Neville won his first La Liga match after Valencia bested Espanyol, 2-1 after his 10th try. But despite losing in his first nine efforts, Red Devil fans are certain that he can do the job better than the Dutchman at the Old Trafford.

Neville spend his entire career playing for Manchester United, making him a one-club man. Following his retirement in 2011, he was the second longest serving player of the squad behind long-time teammate Ryan Giggs.

Aside from Neville, rumors are also building that former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is being considered as Louis van Gaal’s replacement. Others wanted to see Mourinho working with Neville for Manchester United though Louis van Gall has still to prove his worth if the team qualifies for the Champions League.

Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the team has luckluster performances under David Moyes, who was sacked after 10 months of being the team’s manager, and Louis van Gaal.

Currently, Manchester United is at the fifth spot in the English Premier with 41 points while Sunderland is at the 19th spot with 23, making the calls for a manager overhaul reasonable.
