United boss Van Gaal storms out of pre-Stoke press conference


Under-fire Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal walked out of his news conference on Wednesday after objecting to questions over his future at the club.

Van Gaal's position at United is the source of mounting speculation following a run of six matches without a win in all competitions that leaves them fifth in the Premier League table ahead of the Boxing Day trip to Stoke City.

Addressing the assembled media ahead of that match, Van Gaal stated that he had the support of United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward but angrily cut his address short.
