Louis van Gaal has been confirmed as manager of Manchester United from the 2014/15 season.
The 62-year-old Dutchman has signed a three-year contract.
Ryan Giggs has been appointed assistant manager while Frans Hoek and Marcel Bout arrive as assistant coaches.
Van Gaal has managed at the top level of European football for over 20 years and in that time has won domestic titles and cups in Holland, Germany and Spain as well as the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and two UEFA Super Cups.
He will take up his post after the FIFA World Cup, where he will manage the Dutch national team.
Giggs, English football’s most decorated footballer and the United player with the most appearances in the club’s history, has been appointed as assistant manager. He took charge of the first team for the last four matches of the 2013/14 season following the departure of David Moyes.
United Chief Executive Ed Woodward said: “In Louis van Gaal, we have secured the services of one of the outstanding managers in the game today.
“He has achieved many things in his career to date and Old Trafford provides him with a fitting stage on which to write new chapters in the Manchester United story.”
