Paul Scholes admits that he cannot wait to see Louis van Gaal take over at Manchester United next season.

The Netherlands head coach is set to take the reins at Old Trafford following the conclusion of the World Cup after signing a three-year deal with the Red Devils to become David Moyes’ permanent successor.

He’ll improve last year’s performance by 20/25 per cent, I feel

Van Gaal’s Holland side have impressed on their way to the semi-finals in Brazil and former United midfielder Scholes is expecting the 62-year-old to be a big hit at the Premier League club.

“Right now, Manchester United fans (and myself) cannot wait for Louis van Gaal to get the job started at Old Trafford,” Scholes wrote in a blog for Paddy Power.

“It’s not a vintage Holland team he’s managing and Van Gaal has got them to the brink of a World Cup Final. He’s going to have to perform a similar operation at United after a shocking season in 2013-2014.

“Van Gaal seems to have the Midas touch, and with his coaching reputation and vast experience he can bring a lot to the club. He’ll improve last year’s performance by 20/25 per cent, I feel.

“As well as the new signings, Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera, (and hopefully more to come) he’ll bring more out of the players who are already there. I’m actually really excited about next season.”
