Louis Van Gaal: The Biography by Maarten Meijer, out in July.


“I think Robin van Persie is an amazing player. He has shown that at United. *Unfortunately, he was injured too many times this season. But I’m sure, with Van Gaal and Robin together, great things are going to happen with Man United … unfortunately! Van Gaal is an open style of manager. He has a clear idea of what footballers need in training and also outside of training. And if you want something to change, his door is open - but you also have to have a very good *argument! He treats players as adults. He is a very experienced coach and we are very lucky to have him. I think we have a great chance of doing well at the World Cup, but we have to take it step by step. Every player has a very good relationship with the manager - but everyone can see Robin has a great connection with the coach.”
