The Old Trafford boss joked that his backroom staff do all the work while he just delegates and earns lots of money.
Louis van Gaal says he has so many assistants at Manchester United it leaves him with hardly anything to do.
The Dutchman led United back into the Champions League last season and has guided them to fourth in the Premier League this term – two points adrift of leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.
Van Gaal believes the role of the coach has changed since he made his managerial bow at Ajax in 1991, joking that he does not have to do much work for his hefty pay cheque.
"I'm from a time where [the coach] did everything," he told The Telegraph.
"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."
