Louis van Gaal greatly impressed the press pack at his Manchester United unveiling last Thursday afternoon, with a show of confidence, authority and composure that greatly contrasted with David Moyes’ same unveiling a year ago.
The contrast is stark: Van Gaal so assured, ready, and clear on his belief in his own ability; Moyes like a rabbit caught in the headlights, unsure of how best to answer questions and looking like he’d rather be anywhere else in the world at that given moment.
While Van Gaal insisted he will go out and do things, the video then cuts back to Moyes using that word that made United fans cringe all last season: ‘Try’.
Where Van Gaal said he will do this, that and the other with sheer conviction, Moyes could only repeat that he’ll try to do so.
Another incredible contrast was their respective reactions to landing the job: Van Gaal says ‘They came to me, I told them my philosophy, and they were excited, that’s why I’m here.
Moyes, on the other hand, sheepishly said: ‘Fergie told me I had the job, before I could say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, and the blood drained from my face.’
With the benefit of hindsight…
Fair to say Van Gaal shaded it. Just.
