Ferguson: Van Gaal right manager for Man Utd

Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Louis van Gaal is the right manager for Manchester United.

Ahead of Sunday's crunch clash with current Premier League leaders Chelsea, the 63-year-old former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach has been given a huge vote of confidence from Ferguson.

"Louis is what I would call a managers' coach," the Scot writes in the updated version of his autobiography.

"He's one of those committed ultra-professionals. If I had to choose one word for him it would be "formidable".

"Football is his life. Wherever he has managed, every footballer will have learned from him. He was a good choice."
