Former Liverpool striker Jari Litmanen is a big fan of new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.

Litmanen played for Van Gaal at Ajax and Barcelona.

"He was sharp tactically. He paid attention to the tiniest details which gave us advantages in games.

"He was the perfect teacher. With him, we listened, we learned, we won. He's a tough man, but at his level you don't get by with a smile and a few kind words."
