Manchester United have officially revealed that Dutchman Louis Van Gaal will take charge at Old Trafford next season, following the FIFA World Cup. Van Gaal was rumoured to have held meetings with club legend Ryan Giggs, who will also be his assistant manager.
The club statement said:
“Louis, 62, has managed at the top level of European football for over 20 years and in that time has won domestic titles and domestic cups in three countries, as well as the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup, an Intercontinental Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and domestic Super Cups in Holland and Germany.
“Ryan Giggs, English football’s most decorated footballer and the United player with most appearances in the club’s history, has been appointed as assistant manager. Ryan took charge of the first team for the last four matches of the 2013/14 season.”
This will be a relief for United fans to finally have Moyes’ successor announced, however the problems in the club remain to be solved as Van Gaal must rebuild the squad to get back into the top four next season.
