Van Gaal Set For Man United Job

Current Netherlands national team coach Louis van Gaal could be appointed as the new manager of Manchester United as early as Thursday, according to widespread reports in the British media.
Van Gaal, 62, quickly emerged as the favourite to become United’s next manager after David Moyes was sacked last month and is reported to have held a meeting with player-coach Ryan Giggs in Holland on Wednesday.
Giggs, who was appointed interim manager following Moyes’s dismissal, was pictured in Van Gaal’s hometown of Noordwijk and is thought to have been offered the chance to work as his assistant.
“After flying out on Tuesday, Giggs stayed overnight at the Oranje (hotel) before making the short journey to the 62-year-old Holland manager’s home,” read a report in The Guardian newspaper.
“There, in a discussion lasting around three hours, Giggs and Van Gaal met for the first time, although the two had spoken by telephone last week when the proposed offer to be United’s assistant manager was first discussed.”
Thursday’s edition of The Sun newspaper claimed: “Louis van Gaal and Ryan Giggs are set to be revealed as Manchester United’s new dream team today.”
