Manchester United offer fans chance to see Louis van Gaal 'at work'
Club's in-house TV channel to show Netherlands World Cup warm-up match
Manchester United fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Louis van Gaal, who will take over at Old Trafford following the World Cup.
However, supporters with a subscription to the club's in-house channel MUTV will be given an opportunity to scour for clues as to how he will turn the club around.
MUTV have announced that they will show the Netherlands' World Cup warm-up match against Ghana this Saturday. In an email to fans with the subject line "See our new manager at work" are details of how the match this Saturday can be seen.
Van Gaal will take over after this summer's tournament in Brazil and is charged with arresting the steep decline seen at Old Trafford since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scot's successor David Moyes lasted just 10 months in the job after the club deemed he was out of his depth.
Van Gaal, who has managed Bayern Munich, Ajax and Barcelona is seen as an experienced pair of hands capable of returning the club to the top. How his Netherlands team play this weekend and at the World Cup might just give a clue as to how he will achieve it.
