Watch van Gaal's press conference live on MUTV

Louis van Gaal's first press conference since beginning work as the new Manchester United manager will be shown live on MUTV HD, the club's official television channel, this Thursday, 17 July.

The live screening of this historic event will be another reason to sign up this summer for MUTV HD, after the channel began broadcasting in High Definition earlier this week ahead of extensive behind-the-scenes coverage of United's pre-season trip to the United States.

A special MUTV HD show covering the press conference will start at 14:45 BST on Thursday. After the live broadcast, there will be several other chances to watch or record the programme, giving MUTV HD subscribers ample opportunity to see what van Gaal has to say about taking charge at United and his plans and aspirations for the future. Former United stars Lou Macari and David May will provide expert analysis.

Van Gaal's first four matches as United manager - on Tour 2014, presented by Aon - will also be shown live on MUTV HD. The Reds will take on LA Galaxy in Los Angeles (on 23 July), AS Roma in Denver (26 July), Inter Milan in Washington DC (29 July) and Real Madrid in Ann Arbor, Michigan (2 August). See ManUtd.com's fixtures page for kick-off times.
