Louis van Gaal has made another addition to his coaching staff at Manchester United by bringing in Albert Stuivenberg as his assistant coach.
Stuivenberg will share responsibility with Ryan Giggs as assistant coach and will start immediately, taking control of pre-season training with Giggs in Van Gaal’s absence.
Prior to his most recent position with Holland’s Under-21s side, Stuivenberg previously won the Under-17 European Championships with Holland in 2011 and 2012.
With such a long track record working with the development of younger players, Stuivenberg will surely have been brought in by Van Gaal to help with United’s academy teams alongside Paul McGuinness and Warren Joyce.
What Stuivenberg’s appointment also does is cast more doubt over whether Phil Neville and Paul Scholes will be involved in United’s coaching staff next season.
Both were involved in different capacities under David Moyes but currently with no deals on the horizon for either, there is a possibility they will not be part of Van Gaal’s coaching staff.
