Man Utd legend Van der Sar happy for Van Gaal over season success

Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar is happy for Louis van Gaal over his success this season.

Van Gaal has guided United back into the top four at first attempt.

Van der Sar, now working in the front office of Ajax, told manutd.com: "I grew up with Louis for six years at Ajax and the Dutch national team and I think he's a fantastic coach. He won the league at Ajax three times, and he has been with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and the national team. He's had some difficult periods but he has belief in his philosophy.

"He has a way of communicating with players, giving them options, and also reviving them - look at Juan Mata and [Marouane] Fellaini who are now flourishing after not the best of starts at United. They've blossomed under him.

"Let's hope the progress we've seen this year can be made again this summer with a couple of new signings, in order to challenge for the title again. I think there's still a lot to come from the squad but you always have to look at where you can adjust or do better."
