My style is different from Wenger and Ferguson: van Gaal

Manchester, Oct 2 (IANS) Manchester United Football Club manager Louis van Gaal said he is a different type of manager compared to Old Trafford legend Alex Ferguson and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

“I set aims and I was very lucky that clubs or national teams want me. Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson are other types I think,” van Gaal was quoted as saying by goal.com on Thursday.

The Dutch coach arrived at Old Trafford in 2014, but has already insisted he plans to retire from his post when his contract expires in 2017.

Wenger has been at the helm of Arsenal for 19 years, but van Gaal says he is man of his word and would retire.

“I always want more. I have set my aims always in advance. It’s the same thing as what I’m doing now,” the United manager said.

“I shall retire. I always do what I have said. I have always set my own aims and I think that I have set my last aim also,” van Gaal said.

United travel to London to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the English Premier League on Sunday.
