However after watching his side draw 0-0 with Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea on Monday, Van Gaal insisted he would not quit and even stated he is hoping to see out his contract which runs until 2017.

Van Gaal told BT Sport, “For me it’s not an interesting subject because I cannot have any influence on that, I can only work on my players,” he told BT Sport when asked about his future.

“You’ve seen they’re fighting for me and have given a good performance. Even after this result the fans were applauding, so I can’t say I’m very much concerned. You never know in football but I have full confidence in the board.

“When the players can give such a performance with this pressure then there is not any reason to resign. I shall not do that.

“I have a contract, it’s not a question of staying, it’s fulfilling my contract.

“It happens too much, it’s not the first time (Being under pressure). My first year as a manager (Ajax) was much tougher, they yelled every week against me. Then I won the UEFA Cup and it stopped.

“People are still applauding. Not everyone, but the most important thing is that the players can do what they’ve done today and the fans can be satisfied.”
