Former Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal announces retirement from football

Former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal, has announced his retirement from football.

The 67-year-old Dutchman has been out of work since he was sacked by the English club, Manchester United at the end of the 2015-16 season,just two days after winning the FA Cup.

Van Gaal announced his retirement while speaking on Dutch TV show VTBL: ‘I am a pensioner now. I have no ambition to be a technical director or a TV pundit.

‘My wife Truus gave up her job for me 22 years ago, and followed me when I went abroad.

‘I told her I would quit as a coach when I turned 55, but instead kept going until I was 65.

‘She is entitled to have a life with me outside of football. I can say she is very happy.

‘I think I could have worked as a technical director, but in this role, you can’t attend training or say anything for fear it won’t suit the coach, directors or media. I don’t think I want a job like that.’  Van Gaal stated.

Before his retirement, Louis van Gaal won one Champions League, four Dutch league titles, two La Ligas, a Bundesliga and led Holland to third at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
