Robin van Persie more than happy with new Manchester United manager

Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie has opened up regarding his excitement on working with Louis Van Gaal every-day at Old Trafford next season, after his National manager took the managerial job at United.

After taking charge of the Netherlands national side during this summers World Cup over in Brazil, Louis van Gaal will then officially move himself and his family over to Manchester to assume control of Manchester United full time, with Ryan Giggs to become his assistant.

Louis van Gaal has a very direct and authoritative style to training and getting the best out of players that have played under him before, hopefully this will be no different as soon as he steps into Carrington. Getting rid of the deadwood and players that are not up to Manchester United’s high standards, bringing in attacking football again with some signings over the summer and getting the club back to the top of the Premier League.

But, Robin van Persie is already relishing the fact that he is working with Louis van Gaal next term, speaking with The Sun on Sunday van Persie said:

“I have enjoyed the past two years with Holland a great deal.

“He is very clear in what he says. I am now going to go through another two-year process with Van Gaal and I am looking forward to it.

“It is a different sort of approach to what I was used to with previous coaches, but I like it.

“It is a very Dutch way of doing things – very direct but intended to make us better players.”

Louis van Gaal is said to have been given up to £150million to spend on transfers this summer window, with the first signing to be left-back Luke Shaw from Southampton for £27million.
