Louis Van Gaal never shies away from making a bold statement and today while speaking to MUTV he gave the strongest hint about who might replace him as the Manchester united manager when the Dutchman leaves Old Trafford.
Van Gaal’s choice seems to be an obvious one, as he named Ryan Giggs to be his successor at the club. Van Gaal believes Giggs is the right man to take charge of United when his time comes as he clearly understands and values the club.
Van Gaal’s contract is due to expire in 2017 and the Dutchman is yet to decide if he wants to extend his stay at the club If Van Gaal does decide to quit as the United boss in 2017, Giggs would would have had 3 years of experience working as the assistant manager of Manchester United.
Giggs joined United’s coaching team under David Moyes and went on to be in charge of the club officially for the last 4 games of 2014-15 campaign after a terrible season under David Moyes.
Van Gaal went on to praise the work Giggs is currently doing with the players and believes that the Welshman will be ready to take charge of Manchester United when his time will come.
Speaking to MUTV, Van Gaal said: “I expect that he will be the next manager after I am gone,”
“Now I have the responsibility. He has tasks that he has to perform like the players.
“What he has to do, for me, he does it very well.”
