The coach admits he get to delegate duties to others rather than do them himself.

During a recent League Managers Association meeting LVG said: "I’m from a time where you [the manager] did everything. Now I’m the manager and I have a sports science department, I have a scouting department, I have a medical department, I have assistant managers, I have assistant coaches.

"I don’t do anything - nothing! I delegate. I delegate, and I earn a lot of money."

According to the former Barcelona, Ajax and Bayern Munich manager, most of the innovations by managers today began from his time as a younger manager.

He said: "Feedback is very important, of course. But I have to say that because when I don’t say that then I’m arrogant!

"I am also an innovator, and I have changed a lot in terms of preparing for games. I was the first coach who was with a notebook. Now everybody is with a notebook. I was the first coach who used video."

Manchester United are presently fourth on the premier league table; two points behind table toppers Arsenal and Manchester City. United face Watford in their next premier league game.
