Manchester United latest: Sneijder on van Gaal; £420m revenues set to be announced

Louis Van Gaal

All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from Old Trafford…

Netherlands international Wesley Sneijder has revealed the differences between his former national coach Louis van Gaal and new boss Guus Hiddink.

The latter took over from the new Manchester United manager after the World Cup, and in quotes published by Goal.com, Sneijder revealed the differences between the two men.

“With Louis, everything was more closed,” the play-maker told De Volkskrant.

“I only knew Guus Hiddink as a person. The first impression is as I expected: things are more relaxed under him.

“There is also room for relaxation, but he (Hiddink) is very clear and accepts no slacking.”

Both men are world-renowned but it will be interesting to see how Holland do under their new coach, with van Gaal fully focused on his new job of turning United’s fortunes around.

In other news, Danny Welbeck may have left Old Trafford for Arsenal, but he is still keeping some things relating to the club very close to him.

The Telegraph has published a photograph of the new Arsenal striker holding a United wash-bag as he shared a joke with Phil Jones.

And finally, the Daily Star reports that United are set to announce record revenues of around £420million for last season, with a £25million profit coming in part due to the sale of two million replica shirts.

When you consider the cost of one United strip these days, it suddenly becomes clear just how much money they would have made selling such a substantial amount in just 12 months.
