Louis van Gaal has given an interview with the BBC this evening where he claims United are the biggest club in the world and he would like to become our manager. United aren’t expected to confirm the appointment until the season has ended though.
“I would love the job,” said Van Gaal. “I hope that I shall be the one. It’s the biggest club in the world and it’s a fantastic challenge. You (the media) are thinking I’m the man but the most important thing is whether Manchester United are thinking that. You have to wait and see what the club decides. It’s always the same – it’s always a process and you have to wait for the process, the press are always too fast.”
