PICTURE: Manchester United’s new dream team has 40 trophies between them

by Sam Peoples

The thought of Louis van Gaal and Ryan Giggs working together in unison at Manchester United is an exciting one.

On the one hand, you have a veteran manager who has had success at some of the world’s biggest clubs and on the other hand you have Giggs, who is the embodiment of Manchester United after nearly making 1000 appearances for the club.

However, surely the most exciting prospect is their trophy collection. Between them, they have won 40 trophies in their careers (not including the Community Shield).

You can’t argue with numbers like that and if they can work well together, United are going to be in very safe hands indeed.

Van Gaal has a proven track record at some of the world’s biggest clubs but to have the guidance of Giggs next to him should really help him get to grips with the strengths and weaknesses of the club that he can remedy.

Bring on the first day of the season.
