Former Manchester United iconic manager, Sir Alex Ferguson disclosed he is impressed with Louis van Gaal’s summer recruitment at Old Trafford and more importantly the continuation of the club’s legacy of producing talents.
The Scot believes the van Gaal’s idea of working on the youth policy is the key to the success of the eventual team.
Ferguson is highly impressed with the way Manchester United has gone around their summer business bringing in old targets for the club as well as top players.
Manchester United brought in six new players in the summer with the highlight been £59.7million spent on Argentine midfielder, Angel Di Maria.
Sir Alex Ferguson broke the transfer record couple of times in his time in charge of Manchester United but never spent up to the figure that saw Di Maria arrive at Old Trafford.
Ferguson however believes the club has done well to bring in the quality required in the team with the signing of Angel Di Maria stating the club has what it takes to make such happen.
He also backed Louis van Gaal’s idea of bringing in quality players in the rebuilding process as the former manager is impressed with the business done with Luke Shaw, a player he tried signing at the age of 16 before his retirement.
Ferguson also talked about the ability of Ander Herrera who gave Manchester United a tough time during the meeting between the club and Athletic Bilbao.
He praised the signing of the midfielder as he sees him as a talented, young athlete who is aggressive in the middle of the park and covers the pitch well enough.
The signing of Marcos Rojo is also supported by the Scot who claims the versatility of the defender is important for the team as he likened Daley Blind to Darren Fletcher of few years back who keeps things simple and makes work easier for his team.
His biggest excitement came over the loan signing of Radamel Falcao.
Sir Alex Ferguson is particularly pleased with Louis van Gaal giving debut to seven young players this season which he sees as a tradition in Manchester United.
The former manager believes the current legacy of the club having so many players across England coming from the United academy must be maintained and has showered praises on the Dutch tactician.
Sir Alex Ferguson is not expected to run down the management of the club in public even if things have not been done in his own ways.
Although the management of the club must be commended with the recent transfer activities, Louis van Gaal must deliver a Top four finish this season to return Manchester United back to where they belong.
It will definitely be a tough call for the manager but with the recent improvement in his team, they are expected to compete this season for a Champions League place and van Gaal will hope they can shoulder the responsibility.
The signings may have been exciting but the players are much more under pressure to get the results to go along with it but with their current level of experience, they are backed to perform and Manchester united may finish in the top four come May, 2015.
