Louis van Gaal‘s wife has revealed that he cried after his brutal sacking by Manchester United back in 2016.

The Dutchman was dismissed two days after months of speculation over his future at the club following Red Devils to the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

His wife Truus, revealed in the Amazon Prime documentary ‘Van Gaal’, that she sensed her husband would get the sack, after United legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson stopped greeting them as Ed Woodward plotted the Dutchman’s departure.

She said, as per the Manchester Evening News: ‘I knew Louis would be fired by Manchester United. I felt it. We had a small boardroom there and it was always fun with the old Manchester legends, Ferguson, Bobby Charlton. We had a table there with good food and drinks.

‘Suddenly, they stopped greeting us, just waved from afar. Something was wrong. It was female intuition.

‘Then when the man (Woodward) denies it, Louis accepts it. I said, ‘Louis, you’re going to be fired. Get wise to it.’ And I slammed the door of the apartment shut.

Louis Van Gaal’s sacking came on the back of a season in which they failed to qualify for the Champions League and scored a measly 49 Premier League goals on their way to finishing fifth. The Dutchman spent £ 284 million at the club on the likes of Angel Di Maria, Anthony Martial and Radamel Falcao.

Van Dijk complained to Rooney after they didn’t ‘buy the players he wanted’ with moves for the likes of Sadio Mane, Sergio Ramos, Thomas Muller, and Robert Lewandowski failing to materialise.
