Video: Paddy on van Gaal

United legend Paddy Crerand provided his own unique reaction to a momentous day for the club during his weekly MUTV show on Monday.

The 1968 European Cup winner revealed he had spoken to Robin van Persie about new manager Louis van Gaal and the Reds striker had raved about his fellow Dutchman.

Host Mark Sullivan interviewed Ron Snellen, chairman of the Dutch Mancunians fan club, who believes next season will be anything but boring under the new boss.

And Paddy, along with ex-Reds Denis Irwin and Quinton Fortune, also paid tribute to Ryan Giggs after the United legend announced his retirement from playing to become van Gaal’s number two.

The Paddy Crerand Show is live on MUTV every Monday night at 18:30 and is repeated at various times.
