Van Gaal on his attacking philosophy, promoting academy youngsters and choosing captains

by Sam Peoples

Louis van Gaal has immediately been singled out as one of the favourites to become Manchester United’s new manager in the summer.

He will be in charge of Holland at the World Cup but reports suggest that won’t put Manchester United off making him the new manager, but is he suitable for the role?

With a proven track record in multiple leagues, Van Gaal is a winner and taking a look at this interview with the Dutchman gives a great insight into his beliefs and philosophy as a manager.

A natural attacking philosophy built around a 4-3-3 formation?

A great emphasis on blooding youngsters into the team if they are good enough regardless of their age?

A clear focus on how he wants his teams to play and how he goes about making it happen?

Van Gaal certainly ticks a lot of boxes and he’d guarantee that United would immediately become a competitive team once again, but is he the right man for the job?
