UNDER-FIRE Louis van Gaal has demanded his Manchester United side show professionalism to pull themselves out of their current malaise.

The Dutchman admits he must also look at himself after his side’s poor run continued with a dispiriting 2-1 loss to Norwich – the side’s third successive defeat in all competitions – at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United were booed off the field after a result which not only left Van Gaal facing further criticism but possibly fighting for his job, with Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola now both in the market for new jobs.

Mourinho left Chelsea on Thursday after Roman Abramovich finally felt compelled to act after a disastrous start to their title defence and has indicated a desire to get straight back into management. Guardiola will be available in the summer too after Bayern Munich confirmed on Sunday that he would leave his job with them at the end of the season.
