Rodgers keen to test himself against van Gaal

In the wake of the appointment of Louis van Gaal, the new Manchester United boss, Brendan Rodgers has spoke of his eagerness to pit his wits against the Dutchman.

Rodgers has said that he has followed van Gaal’s career and has studied his form during his time with Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and AZ Alkmaar. He seems pleased with the appointment and thinks that van Gaal could help to rebuild United’s fortunes after Moyes reign.

Speaking to TALK Sport, Rodgers commented:

“First of all, it was really sad that David Moyes didn’t get the opportunity,”

“Obviously with David gone, they were looking to appoint someone with experience and certainly Van Gaal is someone I have studied and looked at for many years.

“He has had great success and he has a way and a vision of how he wants the game to be played. He works with young players.

“Certainly his profile fits a club of Manchester United’s history. As a young manager, I’m really looking forward to working against another great coach in the world game.”
