Januzaj: Bright future under Van Gaal

Adnan Januzaj believes Manchester United's future is looking better after the appointment of Louis van Gaal as manager.

The Netherlands coach signed a three-year deal on Monday and will take the reins at Old Trafford after the end of his country's World Cup campaign.

United have just endured their worst season for a quarter of a century, finishing seventh in the Premier League and failing to win any silverware, but teenager Januzaj is optimistic about their prospects in years to come.

He told HLN in Belgium: "He is an excellent coach, who has won a lot of prizes. I think United is facing a bright future."

United's most decorated player Ryan Giggs ended his 23-year playing career to take up a role as Van Gaal's assistant, a move which pleased Januzaj.

He added: "Giggs is very important to us. He gets a lot of respect and also helps me constantly."

United's players welcomed the appointment of Van Gaal, with top scorer Wayne Rooney back the Dutchman on Twitter.

Midfielder Michael Carrick added: "Big day. New manager in & Giggsy hanging his boots up. Can't wait to get started again, Looking forward to the next chapter."

The club record signing Juan Mata said: "Big day at the club. Looking forward to start the new season!"

Defender Rio Ferdinand, who is leaving United when his contract expires in the summer, said: "Good luck to Louis Van Gaal as the new manager of Manchester United. Also to Ryan Giggs as No 2. Hope they get United back to the top where we belong."

Winger Ashley Young was delighted Giggs, who made 963 appearances for United, had agreed to carry on his Old Trafford career, writing: "Been an absolute honour to play alongside The Great Ryan Giggs. Even better to see him staying at the club #LEGEND."
