Charlton looking forward to United adventure
Sir Bobby Charlton believes Louis van Gaal will halt Manchester United's decline and embark on a "great adventure".
The Red Devils have endured a difficult transition since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
While the Scot's handpicked successor David Moyes paid the price for a disappointing season leading to the appointment of van Gaal, the Dutchman is still searching for his first competitive win as United boss.
But club legend Charlton has faith in the former Holland coach and expects the good times to return to Old Trafford very soon.
Speaking at the Soccerex convention in Manchester on Monday, the 76-year-old said: "It seems strange that Manchester United aren't involved in European football for a season. It's crazy but maybe it can make things easier for us.
"We've started with some new players, we've not been playing well but we will play well.
"I think that it's going to be a great adventure of how we pull ourselves back round and get back to the way it used to be.
"(Van Gaal) has given me and most of us fans some good news. We won't struggle, definitely we won't struggle any more.
"It's just such a strange environment the way that it’s all happened, that Manchester United is out of the news but it won’t be for very long."
