A genius, a pioneer, a trouble-maker, an authoritarian...No matter how you see Louis van Gaal as a manager, there’s no questioning that he won’t bring mass change to Manchester United.
Following the pitiful performances of last term the Old Trafford hierarchy made the decision to appoint a man very much in the same mould as the great Sir Alex Ferguson as their head coach, all with a view to see their club restored to the glory days of yesteryear through a system-wide shake-up.
Numerous changes have been speculated as being in Van Gaal’s plans once he joins up with the first-team squad. Rumour has it he’s already cut short the usual month-long break for the players participating in the World Cup to just three weeks, and that he’s ready to introduce evening training sessions as part of his pre-season schedule.
So just what changes can United fans expect to see Van Gaal introduce? Here we pick through four that are potentially the biggest.
