Former Chelsea ace Bolo Zenden has revealed that reported Manchester United managerial target Louis van Gaal works like Sir Alex Ferguson.
As reported by The Express, Zenden has insisted that he's not surprised that the Dutch coach is in the frame to replace the departed David Moyes at Old Trafford.
Zenden, who also played for Liverpool during his Premier League career, believes Van Gaal could handle the big names at Manchester United.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast, Zended said: "Van Gaal is quite a character.
"I'm sure if he comes to England that the press will love him. He's very straightforward and he's one of the managers that's worked at the highest level with the biggest players.
"It doesn't surprise me that he's one of the candidates because at Man Utd, they love to work with players from the youth academy and with the biggest players on the planet.
"He's one of the managers who can deal with the bigger players. When he thinks he's right, that's what he will do. He comes close to Sir Alex Ferguson in terms of the way he works."
It remains to be seen as to whether the Manchester United hierarchy will approach Van Gaal in the near future, but for now the club will be in the hands of Ryan Giggs.
The Welshman has taken over the Old Trafford hot seat on a temporary basis until the season, and Manchester United fans will be hoping the club can end the campaign on a high.
The Red Devils play host Norwich City on Saturday evening and will be desperate to secure all three points against the Canaries.
