5. Louis van Gaal
The most unlikely scenario is that the current manager survives the tumultuous season, somehow bringing Manchester United into the top four and a Champions League birth.
The Dutchman has done one thing well for the Red Devils – his inclusion of youth has set the groundwork for the next decade or so. Several of those youth players have received international debuts as a result of their involvement with their club side, including Paddy McNair for Northern Ireland.
However, he’s fallen out of favor with the supporters and, more likely than not, some of the players. Ander Herrera has been rotting away on the bench for much of the season despite starting the year well, while Andreas Pereira has featured only sporadically.
Van Gaal has further nailed his coffin shut by appearing disillusioned in press conferences, boasting the draw against West Ham as a good result and holding onto belief that his side can win the FA Cup despite their horrendous form.
As such, it’s entirely unlikely that van Gaal is still around at the start of the summer.
