Man Utd No2 Giggs: Van Gaal will relish challenge

Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs expects new boss Louis van Gaal to take no prisoners. The former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has underlined his credentials in the past month by guiding Holland to the semi-finals in Brazil.

Giggs, who will be Van Gaal's assistant manager, said: "I think, like everyone would expect, he has got a clear philosophy and he sticks to that philosophy.

"He won't be afraid of taking over Manchester United. He will relish it, he will look forward to it.

"He has been at Bayern, he has been at Barcelona - he has been at huge clubs.

"Obviously Manchester United, in my view, are the biggest.

"He is not scared about the challenge, he is not apprehensive. He can't wait and he has got the experience.

"It won't be easy, it never is. The Premier League is a tough league to win, but that is what we will be trying to do.

"I am just excited by how forthright and how clear he was and what he expects of the staff and the players."
