Van Gaal happy to back his Man Utd kids
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is prepared to back his kids this season.
He said: "I'm not a coach who thinks short term. I am a coach who always thinks in the long term.
"When you look at Ajax, I had the youngest team to win the Champions League, with 17, 18, 19-year-old players.
"When I buy, I buy players for the long term not the short term because I respect the club I'm at."
