Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes that Louis van Gaal's experience will turn things around at Manchester United.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is confident that Louis van Gaal will succeed as Manchester United boss.

The Dutchman is yet to win a competitive fixture with the Red Devils, who appointed Van Gaal following last season's disastrous campaign under David Moyes.

The North-West outfit fell from champions to seventh in the Premier League after Sir Alex Ferguson retired following 27 years at the helm of Old Trafford.

Mourinho told Eurosport-Yahoo: "He is one of the best managers in the world, so I think he is a man with great experience for the job. Manchester United is a big team, he is a big manager, so I think they will do well together."

Mourinho worked alongside Van Gaal for three years during the pair's time together at Barcelona.
