Rio Ferdinand: I’ve not heard a bad word about new Man United boss
Rio Ferdinand believes that Louis van Gaal's managerial approach will be successful at Manchester United
Rio Ferdinand believes that Louis van Gaal’s “strong” attitude will bring success to Manchester United in the coming seasons.
The 62-year-old Netherlands head coach is due to take charge at Old Trafford after the conclusion of the World Cup as the Red Devils look to bounce back from a disappointing 2013-14 campaign.
Having faith in the man in charge is a huge part of achieving success
And former United defender Ferdinand is sure that the former Bayern Munich manager will be a big hit at the Premier League club.
“I’m sure you’ve heard all the stories of how eccentric he can be but I’ve not heard a bad word about him from any player he’s worked with,” Ferdinand wrote in his column in the Daily Mail.
“He’s a hard man, strong, big on discipline within the football environment. But he also trusts his players.
“The other night I was in a bar with some of his Holland squad. They were mixing with the public, having a bite to eat. They knew their curfew and would respect it.
“He believes in his players. They believe in him. Having faith in the man in charge is a huge part of achieving success in our game. The best managers earn that faith.”
