Louis van Gaal has begun to assess his Manchester United squad following his arrival at the club earlier this week and so we went behind the scenes at the Aon Training Complex to see the Dutchman at work.
Having guided the Netherlands to third place at the World Cup with a 3-0 win over hosts Brazil, van Gaal barely paused for breath before flying in to take the reins as the Reds' new manager.
He's already spent plenty of time running the rule over his new charges in training and deciding which players are to jet out to the United States for Tour 2014, presented by Aon.
A busy week for the club's new faces concluded with Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera jetting off on the pre-season tour for their first official engagement since signing for the Reds
