Mourinho said: "He is a great football manager and I am happy he joins me in the same country and the Premier League.

But more important than that, he's a great guy, a great man and I wish him good."

Former United assistant manager Mike Phelan said Van Gaal's "strong personality" would make him the ideal fit to step into the considerable shoes of Sir Alex Ferguson.
