It has been a longer negotation process than some Manchester United fans may have wanted but Louis van Gaal has been officially announced as the new manager.
That being said, the last thing anybody wanted was for us to dive straight in and announce a new manager like we did with David Moyes.
Whether the delays happened due to disagreements over Van Gaal’s coaching staff or balancing his Holland commitments is now largely irrelevant.
All that matters is Van Gaal is going to be our manager for the next three years if he sees out his full contract.
Unfortunately, United fans are going to have wait a little longer for Van Gaal to be officially unveiled as our new manager because it won’t happen until after the World Cup.
In the mean time, Van Gaal – welcome to Manchester United.
