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


“He’s proved it at Barcelona, he’s also proved it at Bayern Munich, so give him a chance. It will be tough especially with the press. I can’t wait for the press conferences with him. He’s a character, he’s a very good coach, knows how to prepare a team, knows how to do it and hopefully will do well with Manchester United. We’re all going to follow him. He does everything himself, he wants to, but you have to accept the way he is. He is sometimes very confrontational, but if you win things why not take it?”
