Louis van Gaal has said that he can help Manchester United make history after being appointed the club’s new manager on Monday, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The announcement came after weeks of speculation that van Gaal would be heading to Old Trafford after he leads the Netherlands at the World Cup, having been made favourite for the role in the immediate aftermath of the sacking of David Moyes on April 22.

The 62-year-old, who has long held ambitions of managing in the Premier League, has signed a three-year contract, while Ryan Giggs will be his assistant. The Welshman, who is the most decorated player in British football history, retired from playing in the wake of being handed his coaching job.

In an interview with Dutch television on Monday, van Gaal vowed to restore Man Utd to a club challenging for the biggest honours after this season’s decline. He said: “The aim is to bring them back to the No 1 position as soon as possible, because that’s where they were under Sir Alex Ferguson. United is the biggest club in the world. Marketing-wise, but also if you look at their budget. They have to finish high.

“To work as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud. I have managed in games at Old Trafford before and know what an incredible arena Old Trafford is and how passionate and knowledgeable the fans are. This club has big ambitions; I too have big ambitions and together, I’m sure we will make history.”
