Wilkins has met with Van Gaal in the past.
"I am sure Robin van Persie has told the lads what type of manager he is. He will walk in with the upmost respect from everybody but they have got to hit the ground running I shared a cab with him once for about 20 minutes.
"We were going to an airport and if I said three words then I was talking a hell of a lot. He is an extremely confident guy and I have no qualms whatsoever that he will do a good job at Old Trafford."
