Louis Van Gaal is reportedly set to become the next Werder Bremen manager, four months after being sacked by Manchester United.
Van Gaal managed Manchester United for two years before getting sacked, with still a year left on his contract. He was sacked shortly after he managed the team to an FA Cup triumph – their first silverware in three years.
The Dutchman revealed that his initial plan was to stay away from coaching to spend more time with his wife and family.
We could have seen Louis make a swift return to coaching when the Dutchman applied for the job as coach of the Belgian National team. However, Roberto Martinez beat Van Gaal to the post.
But now, it seems that Van Gaal is eyeing up another managerial post – this time in Germany.
The Hamburger Abendblatt reports that Louis Van Gaal is the prime candidate to replace the recently departed Werder Bremen manager, Viktor Skrypnyk.
The news source reveals that Van Gaal has been in contact with the club, and a deal is being ironed out.
Van Gaal has experienced coaching in the German Bundesliga back when he was the manager of Bayern Munich. He won one Bundesliga title and as well as the German equivalent of the FA Cup, but was sacked the following season.
The Dutchman is keen to prove his critics wrong and showcase his vast wealth of managerial skills.
