Kluivert played under Van Gaal in his youthful days at Ajax Amsterdam, where he scored the winning goal in the Champions League final against Barcelona in 1995.

There have been previous incidents of Van Gaal falling out with senior players, most notably Robin Van Persie, who since been sold to Fenerbahce.

"He's a trainer and a man who really wants to do well and sometimes, with experienced players who have already achieved something, he has some struggles," Kluivert told Omnisport.

"With young players he is amazing, he's fantastic. Sure, also with experienced players but some players who are experienced have their own vision of playing in the game. That does not always go well.

"He knows what he wants. He is very honest, he is very straight and that's a characteristic that suits him very well."
