Louis Van Gaal is quoted as saying about the new Manchester United job - on his vision, Fergie, and Mourinho


as reported by @Elko_B


“We don’t talk about money. We talk about the players I want. We’ll have to see if we can get them. We also talked about who can go.”


“The aim is to bring them back to the NR. 1 position as soon as possible, because that’s where they were under Sir Alex Ferguson.”


“I told them my vision, who I wanted in my staff, what I wanted for the future. They were impressed.”


“United is the biggest club in the world. Marketing-wise, but also if you look at their budget. They have to finish high.”


“I’ve been in even longer negotiations. There's so much that needs sorting out. Generally, I do everything myself. I just have a few friends who are specialists.”


“I think it will be a very difficult job, but a fantastic challenge.”


on Fergie: “I don't think he is the biggest problem. I put more pressure on myself than others do. : I’ll undoubtedly have a drink with Ferguson. We’ve done that before. We like each other.”


“I didn't call Manchester United, I didn't call Bayern Munich, they've always called me. And I'm proud of that.”


“Mourinho was the first one I texted. And he was the first one to text me back. He said he was jealous of my list of clubs. Especially the great AZ!”


“It was retirement, or going to England. My wife Truus wanted me to retire. But now we're going to England.”
