Man Utd legend Robson expects success under Van Gaal

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson is convinced of big things from new manager Louis van Gaal.

Van Gaal defied his critics to guide Holland to the semi-finals of the World Cup before they were knocked out by Argentina on penalties.

Robson believes Holland's run to the last four bodes well for United, who finished seventh last year under David Moyes.

"He has been a winner all his coaching career so hopefully he will install that back into the club," said Robson, who played 461 times during a 13-year spell at United.

"In the World Cup Holland were very good. Tactically he got them really well-drilled and I thought they were very unlucky. I thought they were better than Argentina, and they could have gone all the way."
