'Van Gaal's Time Is Up'

Former England international and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer believes time is running out for Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.

The Old Trafford club have spent millions since the Dutchman's arrival and don't have much to show for it.

The Red Devils boss believes it takes time for new players to gel, but Shearer insists that time has run out and he needs to start getting results.

"I would argue Louis van Gaal cannot even afford to draw the game against Liverpool," Shearer told The Sun.

"He has been asking for more time for his team to blend, for young players to develop, etc. Time is up I'm afraid – the time is now.

"You cannot oversee the changes he has made, backed by hundreds of millions, and then claim you are a victim because it needs time to blend.

"It is your job to mould a side and I would suggest a year is plenty for a club of Manchester United's standing.

"You can get away with the dull, functional football Van Gaal is dishing up if you are getting results.

"But if you go back to the end of last season, Van Gaal's league run over the last 10 games now stands at three wins, three draws and three defeats.

"Van Gaal's CV has afforded him the time that David Moyes was not given. But a poor result on Saturday and questions will start to be asked."

United take on Liverpool on Saturday, and a win would give the Red Devils a three-point cushion over their rivals.
