Arsene Wenger’s praise for ‘top quality’ new Man United boss

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Louis van Gaal is a "top quality" appointment for Manchester United

Arsene Wenger believes that Manchester United have appointed a “great manager” in Louis van Gaal and expects the Red Devils to challenge for the title next season.

The 62-year-old Dutchman officially took over at Old Trafford on Wednesday after signing a three-year deal to become David Moyes’ successor earlier this summer.

Van Gaal joined up with his new club after having guided the Netherlands to a third-place finish at the World Cup in Brazil.

And Wenger is sure that the former Bayern Munich manager will be a big hit at United in the seasons to come.

“I believe that Manchester United have appointed a great manager who has shown during the World Cup that he’s top quality,” said Wenger.

“It will certainly be difficult for us but for other competitors as well. We are all at the same level.”
