A Master Tactician
Louis Van Gaal has a reputation of being a tactical genius. One Champions League triumph in his career added with the La Liga, Bundesliga and Eredivisie titles, one could say more often than not he has tasted success. Expect orthodox tactics which employs a heavy work ethic.
A penchant for youth
It was Van Gaal who gave opportunities to the likes of Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller, Xavi, Iniesta and Puyol when they were extremely young. Manchester United also have a history of youth players who made it big the most obvious example being the Class of ’92. If Van Gaal takes over the reins at United we can be sure that he will continue the practice of giving youth players a chance in the first team and making them stars.
A no nonsense manager
Van Gaal appears to be a very strict manager. Apparently he pulled down his pants and displayed his genitals to his dressing room just to prove that he had the “balls” to do whatever he wanted. Now, that story might not be entirely true but one should always remember that there is no smoke without fire. Van Gaal is just what Manchester United need, a big manager with a big ego.
His Experience at managing “big” clubs
In his managerial career spanning over 20 years Van Gaal has managed a few of Europe’s biggest clubs. He managed Barcelona twice, Bayern Munich for 2 seasons and he brings a wealth of experience to the job at Manchester United.
