Van Gaal relishing Man Utd challenge, believes Giggs

Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has said that new boss Louis van Gaal will relish the challenge of taking over at Old Trafford, BBC Sport has reported.

Despite his appointment being confirmed at the end of May, the 62-year-old does not take over until later in July due to leading the Dutch national team at the World Cup, in which they reached the semi-finals. He and the Netherlands squad will leave Brazil after the third place play-off against the host nation on Saturday.


After a disappointing season under David Moyes, where the club finished seventh and failed to qualify for Europe, the pressure is on van Gaal to guide Man Utd back to a position where they are fighting for the Premier League title, as they were almost every season under Sir Alex Ferguson.


Despite the intense and pressurised nature of the job, Giggs believes van Gaal will be ready for the task. He said: "He can't wait. He's not scared about the challenge. He's been at Bayern, Barcelona. He has the experience to do it."


"Louis has a clear philosophy and he sticks to that philosophy. He won't be afraid of taking over Manchester United. He'll relish it. It won't be easy. It never is. But I was excited about how forthright and how clear he was about what he expects from the staff and the players."
