Reports have emerged claiming that Manchester United legend Andy Cole is backing Louis van Gaal for success at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal, the former Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and current Holland coach, will be confirmed as United’s new manager in the coming days.
The former England international striker remarked: “We are hoping this is the one that can bring us success again.
“It has only been one season when we haven’t won anything – that is how crazy it is, that it is doldrums – but he has got the experience of managing at big football clubs.
“He has not managed in England but experience is massive, especially at a football club of this magnitude.
“He has European experience, knows how to deal with big-name players and has a history of bringing through kids as well.
“To have managed at those clubs he has managed at, you need something special.”
