Ronald De Boer: ‘Van Gaal can be mentor for Ryan Giggs to eventually take over at Manchester United [BBC 5 Live]
- May 6, 2014
With Louis van Gaal set to take over at Man United next season, opinions are being sought on the Dutchman back in the Netherlands.
Having managed at Ajax and Barcelona, van Gaal has an impressive list of alumni who’ve gone on to successful management careers, with Guardiola, Mourinho, and Frank de Boer having learned from the tutelage of the authoritarian during their careers.
BBC Radio 5 Live got the opinion of Frank’s twin brother Ronald, who believes that van Gaal’s understated experience in tutoring players into management will be the perfect situation for Man United.
With Ryan Giggs still a management greenhorn and in need of learning the trade before being a genuine candidate to the Old Trafford throne, de Boer believes van Gaal could be ‘the perfect mentor’ for Giggs, giving him the knowledge he needs to eventually take over in years to come.
