Manchester United legend Paul Scholes feels Louis van Gaal is the right manager for the club.

Scholes has plenty of faith in Van Gaal - a man he sees as very much in the same mould as Sir Alex Ferguson.

The former England midfielder added: "Louis van Gaal has the respect of the players. He got it as soon as he arrived. This is a man who has managed some huge clubs: Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and he has just taken the Netherlands to third place in a World Cup finals.

"He is a man with presence. He looks a bit of a scary man. Good. Sir Alex Ferguson was a scary man too, at times, and it is possible to push players into performances. From what I've seen in pre-season, he looks a bit mad. He's a bit like a mad genius - he looks a bit crazy."
