Louis van Gaal will be a big success at Manchester United next season, according to David Sadler.

The 62-year-old Netherlands head coach is set to take over at Old Trafford following the conclusion of the World Cup, where his team face Argentina in the semi-finals.

He looks a tough guy and I’m not going to pick a fight with him!

And former United centre-half Sadler is certain that the ex-Bayern Munich boss, who has signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils, will be a big hit at Old Trafford.

“He’s a very experienced manager and has done just about everything in the game,” Sadler told ManUtd.com.

“He might win the World Cup with Holland – that would be nice.

“I’ve never worked under him but, by all accounts, he’s a tough guy. He looks a tough guy and I’m not going to pick a fight with him!

“Stuff has been seeping out with people talking about him and, if half of those things are true, it seems we’ve got a very good manager.”
