Van Gaal Named As New Manchester United Manager

Manchester United confirmed the appointment of Louis van Gaal as manager.
The 62-year-old has signed a three-year deal and will take over at Old Trafford following the end of his stint in charge of the Netherlands after the World Cup in Brazil.

Ryan Giggs will remain at Old Trafford as Van Gaal's assistant manager after taking charge on an interim basis following the sacking of David Moyes. Frans Hoek and Marcel Bout, countrymen of Van Gaal, also arrive at Old Trafford as coaches, with the former specialising in goalkeeping and the latter in scouting the opposition.

Van Gaal, Giggs, Ed Woodward and club owners the Glazers have had their say on the appointment, and the Dutchman is keen to "make history" at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman agreed a deal in principle with the club on April 26 but an official announcement was delayed to work around his commitments with the Dutch national team.

"To work as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud," Van Gaal said. "This club has big ambitions; I too have big ambitions. Together I'm sure we will make history."
