Rafael da Silva has spoken to the Evening News about the new manager, in comparison to the other United managers he’s played under.

The Brazilian believes it will take time to adapt to the Dutchman’s philosophy but that his track record proves he can be a success at United.

Everything takes time. It’s a different philosophy. If we understand the way we are playing like we are doing, the results come and everything starts to run smoothly, we certainly have a chance of winning the title. Louis Van Gaal is a strong coach. He admires things that are done right. He asks everybody to be on time for our sessions, we can’t be late. He likes to see us training hard. So, he has some differences (to previous managers), especially in terms of his philosophy, and we need to be able to adapt to it. However it’s must be right because the proof is the titles that he’s won.
