Ryan Giggs gave his own verdict on Holland’s impressive 5-1 victory over spain and said it was nothing unexpected, not when Louis van Gaal is Manchester United’s manager.
Giggs is out in South Africa at the moment doing some television coverage for the World Cup and next season, he’ll be working underneath Van Gaal as his right-hand man.
“What did you expect, he’s a Manchester United manager,” he said.
It must fill him with just as much excitement as fans to see Van Gaal’s Holland systematically and ruthlessly take apart from the reigning World and European champions with ease.
The final score might have been 5-1 but the reality was that it could easily have been 8-1 if other chances were taken and it was total dominance from the moment they equalised.
At the World Cup, there have been 15 goals in four games. Last year, it took United until 28 Jan to score 15 games at Old Trafford but if that performance is anything to go by, we’ll have plenty more than 15 goals by the time January comes around.
