Louis Van Gaal: Manchester United Sponsors AON Welcome New Manager

Supporters will argue it is bad enough board members' quotes are shoehorned into press releases confirming a new manager, but Manchester United's shirt sponsors AON surpassed that sanctimony when they posted their own greeting following Louis van Gaal's appointment on Monday.
