Former Man Utd striker Cole backs van Gaal for manager’s job

Former Manchester United striker Andrew Cole has insisted that Louis van Gaal’s lack of experience of managing in the Premier League will not hinder their chances if he does indeed take charge at Old Trafford, writes Sky Sports.

The Dutch national team coach is widely expected to be named the new Man Utd manager in the next week, having been touted for the job since the dismissal of David Moyes on April 22.

In his managerial career, van Gaal has taken charge of some of Europe’s leading clubs, including Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Despite his experience, van Gaal has never managed in the Premier League, but Cole, who scored 93 goals during his time at the club, believes that will not make much of a difference. He said: "We are hoping this is the one that can bring us success again.

"He has not managed in England but experience is massive, especially at a football club of United's magnitude. He has got the experience of managing at big football clubs. To manage where he has you need something special. He has Champions League experience too, knows how to deal with big-name players and has a history of bringing through kids as well."
