Some people might say that they are not overly satisfied with the work put in by Louis Van Gaal as manager at Old Trafford, but, Sir Alex Ferguson has given full marks to the Holland native.
Sir Alex believes that Van Gaal should be credited for bringing in stability to the trembling ship of the Red Devils.
When Ferguson left in 2013 summer, he passed on the reins to his compatriot David Moyes with the hopes that he would take his legacy forward.
But, Moyes’ term was an absolute disaster for United as not only did they fail to defend their Premier League title, they could not even make it to the European Cup causing the fans to be absolutely angry.
The manager’s head was being wanted and eventually, the Glazer family had to make the sacking call with a few games still to go in the season.
Ryan Giggs took over temporarily before Van Gaal arrived last summer.
Though Van Gaal has not changed things extraordinarily, but, he has tightened up United a little bit and has made it difficult for the opposition to defeat them easily.
He has actually got stick for that with people saying that he is making Manchester United play the kind of Football that they have never played.
But, even with his defensive tactics, Van Gaal has managed to put impression on Sir Alex who poured heaps of praise on the Dutchman in an interview recently.
According to Sir Alex, Van Gaal has lessened the no. of defeats since his arrival and that’s pretty good considering that this is a sort of rebuilding time for United.
Manchester United seems to be going to finish at 3 or 4 in the League table this season if they don’t suffer string of losses from here on in.
