Peter Schmeichel wants Man United legends to succeed Louis van Gaal

Peter Schmeichel wants Man United duo Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville to take over at Old Trafford in the future

Peter Schmeichel says he hopes Gary Neville can gain some experience at Valencia before returning to take over the reins at Manchester United alongside Ryan Giggs.

The former England defender was appointed as Valencia’s head coach until the end of the season on Wednesday afternoon.

Neville has been working as a pundit on Sky Sports since 2011, whilst he has also been involved in Roy Hodgson’s England set-up.

Giggs, meanwhile, is currently working as Louis van Gaal’s assistant manager at Old Trafford, with the Welshman tipped to take the Old Trafford job in the future.

Former United goalkeeper Schmeichel believes a combination of Giggs and Neville would work well at the Red Devils.

Van Gaal’s side are in third place and a point behind joint Premier League leaders Manchester City and Leicester City.
