Welsh national team boss Chris Coleman has stated that recently announced Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal will have a tough time in order to meet the expectations of the club. United recently parted company with David Moyes after just 10 months in charge. The former Everton manager struggled to cope with the intense pressure at United. Towards the end of the regime, he looked a very old and stressed out man. Coleman says that the pressure of managing a big club like United will definitely take its toll on van Gaal.
The Dutch national team boss, though, has the experience of managing several top clubs in the world. He has won league titles with Ajax, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich. He has also taken the Dutch national team to major competitions like the World Cup 2014 and Euro 2012. Coleman, who was under intense pressure only a few weeks ago, appears to be now relaxing ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. He recently expressed his confidence that Wales will be able to qualify for Euro 2016 largely because a maximum of three teams will progress from each group.
Coleman has urged the United board to give van Gaal the time he deserves to bring results to the club.
"It will be interesting to see what happens if Manchester United go through next season not winning anything because there is that possibility. Regardless of how easy they look on the eye if they haven't won anything what are they going to do? They are used to winning things and bossing situations and last season they didn't do that. I thought it would be hard for Moysey in the first year or two and I was disappointed as a fellow manager that he only got 10 months,” said the former Fulham boss.
