Having taken on Ryan Giggs as his assistant at Old Trafford, Van Gaal is keen to keep Manchester United legends Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville on the coaching staff.

Butt, Scholes and Neville, who were all part of the ‘Class of ‘92’, assisted Giggs during the latter part of last season following David Moyes’ sacking as the manager of United, and former Netherlands boss Van Gaal is determined to find roles for Scholes and Neville.

"Butt is already assisting us. Scholes - we will find a role for him. And we also want to find a role for Phil Neville,” Van Gaal said during his first press conference.

“But it has to be possible within the qualities of these people. We will speak to them about it personally."

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    By Justin Palmer BIRMINGHAM (Reuters) - Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    By Ossian Shine KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
