Manchester United latest: Hull reaction & van Gaal delay

19 Old Trafford

News, views and rumours relating to Manchester United in the past 24 hours.

Manchester United won 3-1 over Hull City on Tuesday night in the last game of the season at Old Trafford.

The club paid tribute to captain Nemanja Vidic who will leave United at the end of the season when his contract expires. The Serbian skipper said his eight years with United have been the best part of his life.

Interim manager Ryan Giggs expects success to return to United in the future after a difficult season under David Moyes this term.

"It has been tough this season but the good times will come back soon," said the Welshman in a pitch-side interview last night.

"Over the years we've been spoilt with the success we've had but you've always supported the team and the staff and I'm sure in the coming years we'll bring you more success."

Defender Phil Jones is a doubt for the World Cup in Brazil this summer with England after suffering a shoulder injury in the clash with Hull.

Ryan Giggs handed a debut to youngster James Wilson who scored the opening goal at Old Trafford. Robin van Persie was ‘impressed’ by the youngster’s contribution on his debut.

“I know how hard it is to make your debut - I made mine when I was about 29! I know how special it can be. He made it very special for himself and for everyone tonight. To score two goals is really special,” said the Dutch ace.

M.E.N suggests James Wilson will get more opportunities under Louis van Gaal who is an advocate of developing youth academy graduates at clubs he takes charge of.

Meanwhile, United will not announce Louis van Gaal as the new manager this week with reports suggesting the Netherlands coach will be appointed next week instead.

Other reports suggest Dutch coach and former Netherlands striker Patrick Kluivert will not be brought into the backroom staff at Old Trafford under van Gaal.

In transfer news, Fiorentina are ‘unsure’ whether they will sign Anderson on a permanent deal following the United midfielder’s loan spell in Italy.

Midfielder Shinji Kagawa will not leave United this summer, according to the player’s agent.

"He (Kagawa) is not unhappy at Manchester United, so there's no reason to talk about him departing to another club,” insisted Thomas Kroth.
