The Louis van Gaal era has begun at Manchester United.
The 62-year-old faced the eyes and questions of the English press for the first time as Old Trafford manager.
While entertaining questions from the presss, he indicated he would give the current players the chance to prove themselves before he looks for replacements.
Despite shelling out nearly £60m on new recruits this summer already Van Gaal wouldn’t rule out dipping his toes in the transfer market again before the season starts.
Both Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw were bought in sharpish earlier in the summer and Van Gaal admitted that he gave his personal stamp of approval over both new recruits.
But when asked about whether there were any targets, he stopped short of making any promises at such an early stage.
“I will do my utmost best. That’s what I can give. I cannot give predictions.You have the biggest club in the world and in two days I know how important Manchester United is.
“I’m here to prepare the team and to adapt to this team.”
“The owners and the chief executive have a lot of confidence in me.” He concluded.
