Van Gaal Offered Fallback Option if Man United Sack Him



Louis van Gaal continues to make it very clear that he intends to stay for the duration of his contract and that he also has the backing of the board; at least for the time being.

Van Gaal’s hot seat has reached scorching levels at times this season, but if and when Old Trafford do pull the trigger on dismissing him, he reportedly has a job waiting in the wings.


According to the Independent:

“The Dutch Football Association want Louis van Gaal to head up the operation to rebuild their national team, by becoming technical director at the helm of the nation’s enhanced football centre of excellence, work on which will be completed this summer.”

“Van Gaal has offered the same reply to recent questions about him returning to the national set-up, two years after taking the Netherlands to the World Cup semi-final, stating simply: “I am manager of Manchester United.”

It’s worth mentioning that the Dutchman also opposed the idea that Manchester United Executive Vice President Ed Woodward give him a public vote of confidence. And of course, we know what usually happens when someone receives a vote of confidence. Just ask David Moyes what happened shortly after he received his.


Van Gaal explained why he would not wish to receive such a statement:

“Because for me it’s much more important that people are saying that to me. I am not so interested in public sayings.”
