Van Gaal incarnation: New Manchester United boss welcomed with tulip mural

New Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has been welcomed to the north of England with a mural made of tulips.

 

The hope, when the Dutchman gives his first press conference at 3pm on Thursday and then takes charge of the three-times European champions next season, is that Van Gaal will blossom into United's perfect manager after the gloom of last year.

The 18 x 25ft artwork, commissioned by William Hill and made by a team of expert florists using 25,000 red and white flowers shipped in from Van Gaal’s homeland, is on display at the National Football Museum.
