Legendary Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has declared that Louis van Gaal is the right man for the club going forward, as he stated in his updated autobiography, set to be released over the coming days.
The former Red Devils manager is of the belief that the current players and his former charge Ryan Giggs, who is now the assistant manager, will learn from the ex-Netherlands manager.
Van Gaal was appointed at the start of the summer, but has endured a slightly mixed beginning to his reign at Old Trafford.
In bringing in Van Gaal to replace David Moyes, who led Man Utd to seventh in the Premier League last season, there was significant pre season optimism both in the press and the media.
Van Gaal has, however, been on the receiving end of some painful defeats, with the 4-0 loss against MK Dons in the League Cup the worst of the bunch.
However, Ferguson has given him a vote of confidence, saying: “Louis is what I would call a managers’ coach.
“He’s one of those committed ultra-professionals. If I had to choose one word for him it would be “formidable”.
“Football is his life. Wherever he has managed, every footballer will have learned from him. He was a good choice.”
