Louis van Gaal says he is relishing the opportunity to manage Manchester United after leading the Netherlands to third place at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

The 62-year-old Dutchman is refusing to go on holiday and will have just two days off at home before officially taking charge this week.

He told "That is no problem for me, I don't need a holiday”

“It's great to have such an exciting challenge. To work daily with young people is something that I don't need time off for."

He added: “I hope at Man United I can do my best. I will do my best. Whether that's enough for the fans I will wait and see, but I genuinely hope that will be the case.”
