Van Gaal mentor Leo Beenhakker predicts the Starting XI for Manchester United

71 year old legendary Dutch manager and a good friend of the new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, forecasts his starting line up for the Red Devils next season.

Beenhakker said, ‘”Let me be clear, Louis has not confirmed anything to me. These are just discussions we have had as friends, not as professionals. Louis wants 11 footballers in the team. Technical players. Even the centre backs must be able to bring the ball out and pass. Vertonghen is one of the best at this, and also left footed which is important to Louis.”

“The plan is to control the game with wonderful passing, touch and bravery in tight spaces, which allows the opportunity of an overload. This allows both wide defenders to become almost wingers. They are both young and full of stamina. They are important because they give the system width.”

“When possession is lost, Strootman is capable of becoming a libero and slotting into a 3 man defence. His intention is to adapt Total Football to the modern game.”
