David Beckham thinks Van Gaal will be perfect for Manchester United
Manchester United legend David Beckham has given his seal of approval over new manager Louis Van Gaal, saying that his focus on youth makes him a perfect fit at the club.
Speaking to Sky Sports, David Beckham said, “He has got a history of working with young players, bringing players through academy systems at places like Ajax. That can only be great for Manchester United. "As a Manchester United fan and for Manchester United as a club, to have someone like this with his pedigree ... he has worked with some of the biggest and best players in the world."
David Beckham was an integral part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s initial golden era at Manchester United, and was on of the members of the famous Class of ‘92 along with Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Neville brothers.
David Beckham also had his say on Ryan Giggs’ retirement, “I'm surprised he's retired because he was still playing great. Physically he's still in great condition; to play for so many years at the top level you have to be in great condition.
"Now he has a new role at the club and it was great to see him walk out as Manchester United manager for those four games.
"When you've got someone like Giggsy, who all the players respect and all the fans love, it makes a huge difference. His role now has totally changed and I'm sure he will find it an easy transition because he takes things in his stride. He's not affected by anything. He knows the club better than most people who are at Manchester United now."
