Former Man United goalkeeper sends message to Louis van Gaal’s table-toppers
Raimond van der Gouw is delighted to see Manchester United at the top of the Premier League
Raimond van der Gouw sent Manchester United a message for congratulations after the Red Devils returned to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday.
The 20-time English champions haven’t graced first place in the English top-flight since winning their last Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson in May 2013.
However, United’s 3-0 victory was enough to hoist the Red Devils above their derby rivals Manchester City and into top spot ahead of next week’s trip to Arsenal.
And former Red Devils goalkeeper Van der Gouw, who spent most of his time at Old Trafford playing second fiddle to Peter Schmeichel, took to Twitter to revel in much-missed Premier League sight.
Well done MU. Love to see you on top of the table.

Memphis Depay, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata scored United’s goals in their 3-0 victory over struggling Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils face Wolfsburg in their next fixture in the Champions League group stage at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
