Louis van Gaal has had his first press conference as Manchester United manager and reiterated his beliefs about the club and his style of working.

“When there is a challenge like this, I never let it go,” he said. “This is a holiday for me. I like the way I can work. I will do my utmost best. That’s what I can give. I cannot give predictions [about how well we will do] because you never know. It’s the biggest club of the world. Within two days I know already how important Manchester United is. I have to work, I have to prepare a team, I have to adapt to this big club. It shall not be easy but I will do my utmost best and when you see my career you can see what I have won. That’s all I can say. The future shall show if I can do that again.”
