Meanwhile, new coach Louis van Gaal and his players will wear United’s new Nike kit for the 2014/15 season, as the Old Trafford club also announced “Nike will continue in its role of technical sponsor and trademark licensee.” Former Holland coach Van Gaal will have just two-day rest at home before officially resuming duty with the ‘Red Devils’ this week.

Having just guided ‘Oranje’ to a third-place finish at the World Cup in Brazil, the 62-year-old has opted against going on holiday and says he is already relishing taking charge of the 20-time Premier League champions. “That is no problem for me, I don’t need a holiday,” van Gaal said. “It’s great to have such an exciting challenge. To work daily with young people is something that I don’t need time off to rest for. “I’m looking forward to it. I’ve only met two people from the daily management at the club – the chief scout and the chief executive officer. And I’ve met two of the owners. It’s time that I get to know more people at the club.”
