Manchester United have officially appointed Louis van Gaal as the club’s new manager.
Speculation had been rife that van Gaal would be given the job, and it is no surprise that the 62-year old has been handed a 3-year contract.
Caretaker manager Ryan Giggs will stay on as van Gaal’s number 2.
Announcing the appointments, Ed Woodward said: “In Louis van Gaal, we have secured the services of one of the outstanding managers in the game today. He has achieved many things in his career to date and Old Trafford provides him with a fitting stage on which to write new chapters in the Manchester United story.
