Louis van Gaal's job security is under further scrutiny after Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward reportedly spoke with senior players to gauge their thoughts on the Dutchman's coaching methods.
The Daily Mail is reporting Woodward held face-to-face discussions with a number of United's veteran players following the Red Devils' 1-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday.
It is understood that van Gaal has lost the support of the playing group following United's mediocre form in recent weeks, which sees them sitting five points outside the top four.
Woodward is reportedly considering replacing van Gaal with United legend Ryan Giggs until the end of the season, however, it is understood Giggs is reluctant to take on the role on an interim basis.
The Welshman took the reigns of United for four Premier League matches after David Moyes was sacked two seasons ago.
