In the end, it was a matter of when, not if.
Dutchman Louis Van Gaal has been appointed as the new manager of Manchester United on a 3 year contract.
He will take over at Old Trafford after leading the Netherlands at this year's World Cup Finals in Brazil.
Van Gaal will be assisted by Ryan Giggs, who has ended his glittering playing career with the Red Devils to join the back room team.
62 year old Van Gaal has a track record of success, having guided Ajax to the Champions League in 1995 and Barcelona and Bayern Munich to domestic titles.
His job is to restore United's performances and prestige after the disappointing David Moyes era.
