Sir Alex Ferguson insists that Louis van Gaal will bring success to Old Trafford if given enough time.
Van Gaal saw his side achieve their first back-to-back win in the Premier League following their 2-1 win over the Toffees [Everton], since he was appointed as Manchester United manager.
The Dutchman has had a bumpy start to his reign at United winning three of his first eight matches but currently sits in fourth position with eleven points.
However, Ferguson, who backed the United boss` overhaul at the club in the summer, compared Louis van Gaal`s start to life at Old Trafford to his and says the board need to stick by Louis van Gaal.
"He’s not been getting the results that are expected but when I came to the club [in November 1986] I didn't get the results I expected myself at the beginning," Ferguson told MUTV.
"What we needed then was Sir Bobby Charlton, Martin Edwards and the board to stick by me and we had a great spell after that.
"Once I got settled into the club, everything was fine. Louis is going through that same process and there’s no doubt in my mind that he will sort it out.”
The Scot commented on the heavy home defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City last season saying he wasn't happy they lost to both rivals.
"I got annoyed when we lost to Liverpool last year. I didn't enjoy that. I don't like losing to Liverpool and Manchester City last year, because they are your biggest rivals and the ones you always strive to defeat and are always in our way. Particularly Liverpool of course."
