Manchester United legend Bryan Robson is in no doubt that Louis van Gaal will bring success again to the English giants due to his Ferguson-like characteristics

Praising the Dutch manager who took charge of Manchester United, guiding them back into the Champion’s League this season, the former Manchester United and England captain said:

a Having watched Louis van Gaal, I am absolutely convinced he is the right man to take United forward.”

a He is very focused on what he wants and how he wants to go about it. I can see the similarities with Ferguson a the same strong leadership.”

“United may not be quite ready to win the title but they must be in the mix. Van Gaal will want nothing less.a

2014-15 season saw Manchester United finish 4th despite spending truckloads of money on new summer recruits. And there is no doubt that the club which won 13 league titles and 2 European Cup under Ferguson, does not see 4th place as a success.

What the season could be, is a springboard for success and Bryan Robson’s comments towards van Gaal once again highlights how highly Louis Van Gaal is regarded at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have the funds to strengthen the team in the summer with as much as 200 million reportedly available to spend.

The club was recently declared the number one brand in world football, ahead of the likes of FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid.


The club, on the back of multi million pounds sponsorship deals has recently posted a record 159 million Euro profit.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has certainly showed in the past that he is capable of winning trophies with much lesser squads.

And with the money now available at Manchester United, the manager is certainly under pressure to deliver the holy grail back to Old Trafford in a year or two.
