Manchester United's Dutch manager Louis van Gaal (R) leaves the dug-out after the English League Cup second round football match between Milton Keynes Dons and Manchester United at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes, north of London, on August 26, 2014. Manchester United sank to new depths on Tuesday when they crashed out of the League Cup in the second round following a 4-0 defeat at third-division Milton Keynes Dons.
Manchester: Louis van Gaal has always said it could get worse before it gets better at Manchester United.
He couldn't have thought it would get this bad.
Barely two months ago, a jubilant Van Gaal was leaping out of his seat and high-fiving his Netherlands players as he masterminded a 5-1 thrashing of Spain at the World Cup in Brazil.
