Manchester United returned to a tried and trusted trophy winner after an ill-fated adventure with David Moyes when announcing that Dutchman Louis van Gaal had been handed the job of reviving the club's fortunes Monday.The 62-year-old, who has masterminded league titles at some of Europe's biggest clubs including Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and won the Champions League with Ajax Amsterdam, will begin the re-building job at Old Trafford once he has finished national duties at the World Cup.To work as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud.Van Gaal will need all his vast experience too as United attempt to repair the damage done by the 10-month Moyes era, which resulted in a seventh-placed finish in the Premier League.At Barcelona he won two La Liga titles in three seasons during his first spell from 1997-2000 while at Bayern Munich in 2010 he became the first Dutch coach to win the Bundesliga, unleashing rising German talents such as Thomas Mueller and Bastian Schweinsteiger and signing compatriot Arjen Robben.The reality of United's situation hit home in the following game – a 1-0 home defeat by Sunderland – and while Giggs may be a future United manager he will spend the next few years learning from the Dutch master.
