Louis van Gaal will spark instant Man United revival, says Bryan Robson
Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson feels Louis van Gaal could mastermind instant revival at Old Trafford
Manchester United can bounce back straight away under Louis van Gaal, according to Bryan Robson.
The Dutchman is expected to take charge of his first United training session on Wednesday after signing a three-year deal with the 20-time English champions in May.
His CV is great. He’s got great experience with top clubs and top players
Van Gaal was lauded throughout the World Cup after the 62-year-old guided his unfancied Netherlands side to a third-place finish thanks to a 3-0 win against Brazil on Saturday.
And former United captain Robson is expecting the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager to mastermind an instant revival at Old Trafford.
“I think United can bounce back straight away,” said Robson.
“You could see Holland were very well organised and there was discipline. Hopefully, he can bring that to Manchester. I think he will.”
Robson added: “His CV is great. He’s got great experience with top clubs and top players.”
Robson, who won two Premier League titles with United, added that a lot of the Red Devils squad let themselves down under Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor, David Moyes.
“A lot of the players let themselves down and didn’t perform the way they had under Sir Alex,” Robson continued.
“They will be up for the challenge and will be excited by the new coach.”
