It has been reported that Paul Scholes supports Manchester United’s appointment of Louis van Gaal.
Following the appointment of Van Gaal on Monday, former Old Trafford midfielder Scholes believes the Dutchman has what it takes to turn the club’s fortunes around provided the club back him financially in this summer’s transfer window.
“Louis van Gaal has the credentials. He’s been at the biggest clubs in the world but he has a major job on his hands at Man United,” he wrote for the Paddy Power Blog.
“It’s a massive task and there’s a big gap to fill to catch Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool next season. United are a long way behind. If van Gaal gets them to the Champions League, it’ll be a start.”
