Five Controversies That Marred The Success Of Louis van Gaal
One of the greatest personalities of the game of football, Louis van Gaal, was reportedly ready to quit the game and end his career as a manager.
The former Bayern Munich manager helped Manchester United to the FA Cup victory in the previous season but he was axed just 2 days later and was replaced by Jose Mourinho. Van Gaal has ever since been out of work and has finally decided to throw in the towel early this year.
Having managed some of the biggest clubs in Europe, Van Gaal, is easily one of the most respected managers in the sport and though his time at United was not very successful, he still stands as one of the most decorated managers in the history.
However, on Wednesday, the Dutchman himself revealed that he is not yet considering to end his relation with the game and denied any reports that he would retire. He revealed, “I thought it would be a sabbatical, but now I do not think I will return.”
It is good to see that he wants to stay strong but all has not been rosy for the 65-year old, who in his time, was involved in a number of controversies. Here are 5 such controversies that Louis van Gaal was involved in:
