LOUIS VAN GAAL: ‘’I AM NOT RETIRED”

Former Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal said that he has not retired and is taking a temporary break from the game.

The Dutch manager said to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf on Monday that he will be retiring from the game to spend more time with the family.

‘I thought maybe I would stop, then I thought it would be a sabbatical but now I do not think I will return to coaching,’ the 65 year old told De Telegraaf.

But he told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser on Tuesday that he might return to football in the future.

“Whether I continue or not will also depend on the offers I get,” he said.

“I’ve coached many clubs and I think it’s very difficult to improve on that level of clubs.

“It’s not true that I’ve retired, not at this moment, but I’ll decide at the end of my sabbatical, next June or July.”

Louis Van Gaal has worked for Ajax Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, AZ Alkmaar and Manchester United throughout his vibrant managerial career. He also guided Netherlands national team to the semifinals of World Cup 2014.
