Man Utd boss Van Gaal "proud" to be compared with Ferguson

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is happy to be compared with Sir Alex Ferguson.Ryan Giggs said the new United boss had an "aura" about him - just like Ferguson.

Being compared to a man who won 13 Premier League titles with United has gone down well with the new man at the helm.

"I highly respect Sir Alex because I don't think there is another manager who has won so many titles," Van Gaal said.

"I (have) won a lot of titles, but he did it in one club and that is fantastic and when you compare Sir Alex with me I am very proud."
