Giggs: Van Gaal is a Pit bull

Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal won’t be intimidated by any manager in the Premier League.

“He’s not going to be overwhelmed,” Giggs is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.

“Even the manager has realised how big this club is in the short space of time he has been here. The crowds for friendlies are ‘unbelievable’ in his words.

“He’s managed at the top level for a long, long time and won’t be intimidated or afraid of managing Manchester United.”

Giggs, who ended his 22-year United playing career to be become assistant manager at Old Trafford, also revealed the players are responding well to Van Gaal’s new methods, despite his reputation as a strict disciplinarian.

“He’s a great character. He is, first and foremost, a leader and demands respect, demands discipline and a real sort of detailed structure,” Giggs added.

“But, within that structure, there is obviously freedom to move. It’s been great. The players have really enjoyed it so far and I certainly have.

“Everything is structured and really detailed. The lads have all enjoyed all the things that have come that are a little bit different. Right down to meeting for breakfast, and for lunch, and even the team meetings that we have. Plus the training.”
