United makes grand proclamation ahead of weekend clash with Everton.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has guaranteed that he will complete his three-year deal at Old Trafford, report the Mirror, despite former manager David Moyes having been sacked from his position in the job less than one year into the rebuilding job that is necessary for United.
Van Gaal has started the new campaign with many of the issues that were clear during Moyes’ tenure, with defeat to Leicester City recently in particular highlighting their deficiencies, but Van Gaal is confident that he will be given the full three years to complete the job:
“I have signed a three-year contract and, believe me, I shall finish that.”
Van Gaal’s strong words come at a time that United need to put together a run of results after beating West Ham last weekend, after their previous home triumph against Queens Park Rangers only led to the calamitous defeat against Leicester City the weekend after.
Having been headhunted for the United managerial position prior to his summer World Cup campaign with the Netherlands, it is clear that a lot of thought was put into van Gaal’s Old Trafford appointment, which is likely to mean that he is given plenty of time to get things right.
In addition, the amount of money handed to van Gaal to overhaul the squad this summer was huge, again meaning that United have put their eggs in the van Gaal basket – something that the Dutchman clearly believes guarantees his Old Trafford stay.
