Albert Stuivenberg set for Manchester United

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has appointed Albert Stuivenberg as his assistant coach, according to The Express.

The report has indicated that the Dutchman will work alongside United legend Ryan Giggs at Old Trafford. And it appears that the coach will begin work immediately, with the Red Devils starting pre-season training.


Stuivenberg has enjoyed great success in recent time, having helped the Dutch under 17 side to two Europan championship wins. He's also previously been in charge of the U-21 side, but will now take his place at the Theatre of Dreams.

Van Gaal

Van Gaal, on the other hand, is gearing up for a World Cup semi-final with the Dutch national side. Robin van Persie and Co. booked their date with Argentina after beating Costa Rica in a penalty shoot out last night.

The experienced manager will take charge at Old Trafford once his side are eliminated from the tournament in Brazil. The Ducth will, however, have to play at least two more games, with a potential final or third placed play-off clash on the horizon.

United's future

Manchester United fans will certainly be excited for the new regime to begin life at Old Trafford. After a disastrous season under David Moyes, the club will be hoping to challenge for the Premier League title this term.

Van Gaal has already made two major signings, with Spanish star Ander Herrera and teenager Luke Shaw purchased. It looks set to be a busy summer for United, with more incoming transfers expected.
