Sir Alex heaps praise on Louis van Gaal

The former Manchester United manager had nothing but words of praise for the Dutch tactician who has guided the club back to better days despite a raft of injuries

Sir Alex Ferguson might have left the club but the legendary Scotsman is still an avid follower of the club where he spent more than 25 years and led them to countless titles and trophies.

Despite seeing so many players missing in action due to a multitude of injuries, Van Gaal has put the team back in contention for a return to Champions League football and Ferguson says that the new players will take some time to settle down but are bound to do well in the coming months.

“When he gets the best players back, you watch United go – because he’s a great coach, he will do well.

Indeed, when Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic joined the club, they took a lot of months to get used to the cultural change but after that, they went on to become integral members of the starting XI for years.
