Welcome to my Manchester United manager story! Using the latest transfer and data updates following the 2014 summer transfer window, we will be trying to take the Red Devils back to the top of England in the run up to FM15. I hope you will enjoy the layout and features presented in this story and can add any suggestions or comments on what you liked or I could improve on! United is a popular choice for FM stories but with that being said, I get most enjoyment from the game managing the team I support so I hope I can keep this story fresh and interesting to read for you all and bring some new ideas with me!
Thank you, KyleJ!
Louis van Gaal has been named as Manchester United manager, with Ryan Giggs as his assistant.
"This club has big ambitions. I too have big ambitions,"
Together I'm sure we will make history."
Van Gaal, 62, has signed a three-year contract to succeed David Moyes. The Dutchman, who has won titles with Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and AZ Alkmaar, will take charge at Old Trafford after leading the Netherlands at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
"This club has big ambitions. I too have big ambitions," he said. "Together I'm sure we will make history." Van Gaal said he had always wanted to work in the Premier League. He added: "To work as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud. I have managed in games at Old Trafford before and know what an incredible arena Old Trafford is and how passionate and knowledgeable the fans are."
