The 62-year-old Dutchman was due at United's Carrington training ground after opting against taking a holiday.

On Thursday he will be officially presented at a press conference before flying out to the United States on Friday for the club's pre-season tour.

United will play matches against the Los Angeles Galaxy, Roma, Inter Milan and Real Madrid before beginning their Premier League campaign at home to Swansea on August 16.
