Jose Mourinho scarves on sale outside Old Trafford ahead of Chelsea visit

A new low for Louis van Gaal as unofficial merchandise depicting his rival goes on sale at stalls outside stadium

If Louis van Gaal thought things could not get much worse at Manchester United, he should probably avoid the merchandise stalls outside Old Trafford today.

Hawkers eager to cash in on the United manager's desperate plight are already selling scarves depicting the face of his potential replacement Jose Mourinho ahead of tonight's crucial game against Chelsea.

Mourinho is the favourite to replace Van Gaal, who has overseen a dire run of six games without a win that has left his side outside the top four.

Van Gaal is expected to leave Old Trafford in the coming weeks, and could even depart tonight if Chelsea pile more misery on him at Old Trafford.

At least he can rest assured that most of the reaction to the scarves going on sale - and it should be stressed that this is unofficial merchandise - has been negative.
