Louis van Gaal has received the backing of well-respected Ajax coach Ronald de Boer with regards to his suitability when it comes to possibly replacing David Moyes.

The famous Dutch manager has been widely tipped to be appointed as Manchester United’s next head-coach, with numerous reports claiming that the Glazer family will oust Moyes unless he can provide reason to suggest next season will be vastly different to this one. The reigning Premier League champions have not only capitulated since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, but now it would seem that fans and players alike are turning against his successor.

As such Van Gaal has been often named in connection with the job in recent weeks, and it would seem than De Boer - who is currently in charge of Ajax’s youth team - is amongst those touting the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss to succeed at Old Trafford if he’s given the nod.

According to Italian website TuttoMercato, De Boer said: “Louis van Gaal is one of the best coaches in the world, and can certainly take care of a team like United.”

The majority of United fans would likely be inclined to agree. The 62-year-old has an excellent resume and has already confirmed that he will not be managing Holland after this summer’s World Cup. Is that enough to suggest he will be drafted in by the Manchester giants though?
