Louis van Gaal admits he could face sack like Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal admitted he could be facing the sack if results don't get better, ahead of the match against Norwich City tomorrow. The Red Devils will need a convincing win over The Canaries at Old Trafford to ease pressure on the Dutchman after going five games without a win.

“I know that, the players know that, my staff know that,” said Van Gaal, reports the Daily Mirror. “We have to win, because, if you lose, also for me, it's the end of the world. “We know that in advance [if results are poor, managers are vulnerable]. Jose also knows that, but it's this world. “What can I say? It was a big surprise for me, I didn't expect it. “He's a fantastic manager with a record that nobody has in this football world, but it is still possible [to be sacked]. “I have said this, last week or the week before, the main thing is always first, the results, and second, the chemistry between players, manager and his staff. “I cannot judge what was happening in Chelsea, but I was very surprised [to see Mourinho sacked].”
