Louis van Gaal reveals exchange with Manchester United security guard

Published 2 Comments

Louis van Gaal has revealed the details of his brilliant exchange with a Manchester United security guard following his side's comfortable 3-0 victory over basement boys Sunderland on Saturday. 

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Van Gaal, who has guided the Old Trafford outfit to the summit of England's elite division, claims he told the security guard that he is now the 'security guy of a club that's top of the league'.

On top of that, the Dutch chief has insisted that United's security guard is proud of the club's achievements.

“Last week it was the first time I was second. He was smiling.”

LVG deserves credit 

By hook or by crook, the Red Devils have found their way to the summit of England's elite division. It certainly hasn't been pretty at times, but Van Gaal deserves a great deal of credit for the club's recent success. 

By no means are they the finished article, but United appear to be on the way up under the Dutch regime. 

Testing time

Ultimately, though, the challenge starts now for Van Gaal and co. in their pursuit of success. With the trio of Arsenal, Everton and Manchester City on the horizon, the club's title credentials really will be tested over the coming month or so. 

Of course, immediate attentions will no doubt turn to Wednesday's Champions League showdown with Wolfsburg, with the Red Devils in desperate need of getting off the mark in Group B. After losing at the hands of PSV in their opening fixture, United can't afford to drop more points in Europe this week. 

It won't be easy, but there's no reason why Van Gaal's side won't be able to come through this testing period.
