LVG faces ‘biggest’ task at Man United, says predecessor

Ryan Giggs believes that although Louis van Gaal has managed big clubs in the past, Manchester United is the “biggest”.

The Welshman took over in the dugout on a temporary basis for the end of last season after David Moyes was sacked, and was tipped by some to take the job permanently despite his lack of experience.

However United opted for the Dutchman, who has managed Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Ajax in a long and illustrious career.

Giggs says that he’s looking forward to working under LVG at Old Trafford, and that the incoming chief will now be in charge of what he sees as the “biggest” club side on the planet:

“I got a taste in the dugout last season and I’m looking forward to working with Louis.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.

“He won’t be afraid of taking over United. He’ll relish it. He has a clear philosophy and he sticks to that.

“He’s been at huge clubs, but in my view this is the biggest. It’s tough to win the league but that’s what we’ll try to do.”

Van Gaal’s first game in charge of United will be a pre-season friendly against Spanish giants Valencia on August 12.
