Manuel Pellegrini says that he sympathises for his Manchester United counterpart Louis van Gaal, who has been at the receiving end of a huge amount of criticism this season.
United have struggled for consistency under the regime of the Dutchman. Fans have also not been able to get a glimpse of the beautiful football that used to be a trademark of the club under Sir Alex Ferguson for more than two decades. Van Gaal has also not been able to deliver trophies that the club has been without since 2013. Due to these reasons, the Dutchman is widely expected to depart one year before the end of his contract.
