Van Gaal. Call me mental but if the owners are as ambitious as they say they need to be bending over backwards and offering the world to guys like this. FFP will be **** off for the next few years, give him a China style contract and wave our balls around in the championship like Newcastle did with Rafa.
Builds a system and style, promotes youth. Typically leaves a team in a better state than he took over in.
Rafa would have been viewed as impossible when he went to Newcastle, they were right in a mess when he took over. Had the extra games prior to relegation to create a system and style, work out who fit and rolled that on into the championship season and walked it. Pay mediocre and get mediocre. Pay cheap buy twice and all that. Let’s go for it this time ffs
