The Dutchman enjoyed an excellent pre-season with the Red Devils but has yet to taste victory in a competitive game with his new club.
Mourinho spent many years working under Van Gaal when they were both at Barcelona and he believes the 63 year-old has the skill to turn around the Red Devils poor form and become a success at the club.
“He is one of the best managers in the world so I think he is a man with great experience for the job,” Mourinho told Yahoo.
“Manchester United is a big team [and] he is a big manager so I think they will do well together.”
Chelsea are favourites to win the Premier League title this season and have started well, winning their first three matches relatively comfortably.
The Portuguese coach has adopted a new free flowing style of football at Stamford Bridge but he has warned fans to expect some dropped points because of it.
“It’s a direction we tried to establish since the beginning of last season but our squad now is different. We have different qualities now in our players,” he added.
“Are we going to lose matches? Obviously, yes, but in this moment we are getting results and we are enjoying our style of play.”
The two managers first take on each other this season at the end of October, when Chelsea travel to Old Trafford to face van Gaal’s men, assuming both men are still in their respective jobs!
