Javier Hernandez backs Louis van Gaal to succeed at Manchester United

by Ben Topliss

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez believes the under pressure Louis van Gaal will succeed at Old Trafford if given time.

Van Gaal has been criticised this season following some awful performances and results over the course of the campaign.

The Dutchman has also received flak for selling players such as Hernandez, who has become one of the deadliest strikers in the Bundesliga this season with Bayer Leverkusen after leaving Man United in the summer. Despite his Old Trafford exit, Hernandez praised van Gaal.

“He is a really good manager to be honest,” the Mexican said.

”He has his own ways like all the managers in the world. You will not find the new Sir Alex Ferguson in the next 50 or 100 years because he was unique. He was special. Van Gaal can do it but in football, time and results are going to speak about if he is the main man or if he is not.”

Van Gaal has been in charge of United since 2014 but, if anything, the club has gone backwards under his negative style of play.

You only need to look at the way Jurgen Klopp has galvanised Liverpool in recent months to see that it shouldn’t take that long to implement a new set of ideas. Unfortunately, it is hard to see a future for van Gaal at United.
