Dutch national team coach Louis van Gaal has been named David Moyes successor at Manchester United following weeks of speculations.

The former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has signed a three-year contract with the 20-time Premier League winners.

He will join the club after the World Cup and will be assisted by United’s longest-serving ex-Welsh player, Ryan Giggs.

“It was always a wish for me to work in the Premier League. To worl as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud,” Van Gaal told the club website on his appointment on Monday.

“I have managed in games at Old Trafford before and know what an incredible arena Old Trafford is and how passionate and knowledgeable the fans are. This club has big ambitions; I too have big ambitions. Together I’m sure we will make history.”

The club also announced Frans Hoek and Marcel Bout join as assistant coaches. Hoek is the Netherlands’ goalkeeping coach while Bout will specialise in opposition scouting, having previously worked for Bayern Munich, telstar, Az Alkamaar, FC Volendam and Feyenoord.

Announcing the appointments, 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.

Giggs, who took charge of the side on interim capacity for the last four games of the season following Moyes’ dismissal, said: “I am thrilled to have the chance to serve as assistant manager. Louis van Gaal is a world-class coach and I know I will learn a lot about coaching from being able to observe and contribute at such close quarters.”

Scotsman Moyes lost his job just ten month after been chosen to replace Sir Alex Ferguson last month.

Van Gaal has won league championships at every club he has managed, including Barcelona, AZ and Bayern Munich, since beginning his managerial career at Ajax in 1991. In total, he has won 19 trophies at club level.

He won three league titles with the Dutch champions, as well as the European Champions League in 1995.

He will be in charge of the Netherlands at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil, after finishing the qualification campaign with a very strong record- nine wins out of ten matches.
