Manchester United have ‘one of the worlds best’ according to his fellow countryman, Frank De Boer. The former Holland defender is full of praise for Louis van Gaal, particularly for protecting his players and making them work harder than they’ve probably had to before.
“I think he is managing very well, always protecting his players and wanting them to always give 100 per cent,” De Boer began.
“If they do that I think he is one of the best trainers in the world. I think he also learned a lot in the last couple of years about what he has to do if he is in a foreign country. He will get what he wants if he gets time and everybody believes his philosophy.”
Louis van Gaal has certainly improved Manchester United since taking over, and this season we’ve seen glimpses of his famous passing philosophy in action. Hopefully he can continue to implement his tactics, and keep pushing the side forward.
You’ve seen just how good sides that he has managed have become just after he leaves, look at the effect he had on Bayern Munich and Barcelona. If he leaves United in a similar situation we’ll be in fantastic shape.
