Louis van Gaal is reportedly ‘happy’ to keep Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt as part of his coaching team next season, according to the Daily Mail. Van Gaal will bring in Patrick Kluivert with him as an assistant manager, whilst Ryan Giggs will take up an assistant manager role also.
They’ll be coaching jobs available for the other trio from the Class of ’92, keeping the core of a young Manchester United coaching staff that could one day be leading the club on a permanent basis.
Van Gaal, who is known for his strict managerial methods is bound to shake up the Old Trafford dressing room when he eventually takes over, and he’ll certainly take no rubbish from any of the players. For me, he’s the perfect man for the job on a short-term basis.
It is well known that Patrick Kluivert was a transfer target for United under Alex Ferguson on few occasions, and it looks like their wish will finally be granted as the 37-year old player-turned-coach is set to partner Van Gaal in a move to England.
