Louis Van Gaal off to encouraging start at Man United


Although it’s easy to dismiss a preseason tournament, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal understands the significance of this next game. There will be at least some bragging rights on the line in tonight’s clash ( 5, Fox Sports 1) against English rival Liverpool. That match in the Miami area is the title game of the International Champions Cup. After United’s shocking seventh-place finish in the Premier League last season, van Gaal has a chance to win this tournament less than a month after officially taking over as manager. Van Gaal says it’s good for English soccer that two Premier League teams will play for this title. – AP
