Is Manchester Untied manager Louis Van Gaal a quitter? Is he going to quit Old Trafford? Is he… Well, you get the idea. The Press are obsessed with the idea of Van Gaal leaving his job. What loon would walk out of a job managing one of the world’s great football clubs?

Today’s Star leads with news that Van Gaal is sane enough to realise he’s got a fantastic job. He’s not quitting. In fact, he says “I Will Never Quit”. The Daily Mail has much the same news:

It all ads up to nothing. It’s a  no-news news story. What Van Gal told the Press was:

“I have not mentioned that [quitting] ever. I think that you make your own stories. Then I have to answer your stories.”

Let’s have a look at the balls the Press has reported on Van Gaal quitting:
