United struggles all part of Giggs tuition, says Louis van Gaal

Saying that he wants to give his protege as diverse an education as possible, Louis van Gaal has explained that Manchester United’s struggles are all part of the elaborate tuition of Ryan Giggs.

The Dutchman has been under increasing pressure, with his side now six games without a win in all competitions. He states there is nothing to worry about however, steadfastly insisting that the entire run and concurrent collapse in style of football are merely the next stage in the grooming of Ryan Giggs as the club’s next manager.

“Fans will complain, but everything is going according to plan. Ryan must learn that football is not sunshines and roses, there are tough times,” said the former Munich coach, adding that in all likelihood the next stage will see the club sink even lower, in a bid to show the Welshman that experience counts for little when you have a stubborn refusal to compromise on any aspect of your management style.

“I wish I had been given these lessons by a mentor. Ryan will learn far more than he ever could have if things had gone well during this campaign. It’s all part of the plan.”

At press time, the former Ajax manager revealed that he would soon be showing Giggs the cautionary tale of how to not destroy all optimism for the season by wasting a transfer window.
