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."
