Manchester - Manchester United paid £8.4 million in compensation to fire Louis van Gaal and members of his coaching staff.

The Dutchman was dismissed in May after two years in charge despite winning the FA Cup because United failed to qualify for the lucrative Champions League.

The compensation details were disclosed in United's financial results for 2015/16, which were published on Monday. They also showed the club's revenue soared 30 percent year-on-year to £515.3 million.

Staff costs climbed 15 percent to £232.2 million, partly due to Champions League bonuses.

The club, which is now managed by Jose Mourinho, reported a profit of £36.4 million.
