Dirk Kuyt is convinced that Louis van Gaal will be a big hit at Manchester United next season.

The 62-year-old is set to take charge at Old Trafford in the coming weeks after his Netherlands side complete their World Cup campaign with the third-place play-off against Brazil on Saturday.

I am sure he is going to be successful in his next job

And the former Liverpool forward feels certain that Van Gaal will bring a winning mentality back to Old Trafford following United’s seventh-place finish last season.

“There was only one thing for this coach and he just wanted to win this cup. That is the type of coach he is, he just wants to win things,” Kuyt said.

“He is desperate to be successful and I am sure he is going to be successful in his next job.

“The spirit is part of everyone. Of course the coach is leading us but team spirit is amazing.

“The 23 players were really important and almost everyone played except for Michel Vorm, and that says a lot about this team.

“We are not 11 players, we are 22 players and an enormous staff of 26 people and everyone played their part in this success.”
