Manchester United have sacked manager Louis van Gaal.

"I am very disappointed to be unable to complete our intended three-year plan," he said in a statement on the United website.

"I believe that the foundations are firmly in place to enable the club to move forward and achieve even greater success."

The Dutchman, 64, led United to victory in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on Saturday. They finished fifth in the Premier League, missing out on a place in next season's Champions League.

Van Gaal signed a three-year contract to take over as manager of the Old Trafford club in 2014.

Former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will reportedly be named as United's next manager this week.
