Football manager Luis Van Gaal made an announcement earlier today confirming his retirement and tributes has since then been rolling in from players he has once managed
Van Gaal did well in his carrer. He won several titles during his first appointment with club Ajax. He won the UEFA cup, UEFA super cup, the intercontinental cup and a Dutch cup. Van Gaal won his first Champions league title in 1995.
The Dutchman won super cup with Fc Barcelona as well as 2 Laliga titles and Copa del Rey title respectively.
Van Gaal in his statement stated:
“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 22 years ago and followed me when i went abroad. I told her i would quit as coach when i turned 55 but instead kept going until i was 65.
She is entitled to have a life with me outside football, i can say she is very happy. I think i could have worked as a technical director”
