Van Gaal's arrival was delayed while he was in charge of Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup, with the nation finishing third.

The Dutchman takes up his post with the Premier League club this week before holding his first news conference as United boss on Thursday.

Meanwhile, former United skipper Bryan Robson has told BBC Sport that he believes Van Gaal can get the side back on track, after they finished seventh in the Premier League under David Moyes last term.

"You could see Netherlands were very well organised in the World Cup and there was discipline. Hopefully, he can bring that to Manchester. I think he will," Robson said.

"They can bounce back straight away. His CV is great. He's got great experience with top clubs and top players."

He added: "A lot of the players let themselves down [last season] and didn't perform the way they had under Sir Alex [Ferguson].

"They will be up for the challenge and will be excited by the new coach."
