Louis Van Gaal Opens Door To Summer Move To Spurs

Ex-Barca and Ajax manager has a glittering CV. 

Experienced Netherlands national team head coach Louis van Gaal has dropped a strong hint that he could be set to replace Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood in the White Hart Lane dugout next season, according to reports in the Guardian.

The north London club actually tried to get the 62-year-old to take over from previous boss Andre Villas-Boas after the Portuguese was fired back in December, only for Van Gaal to reject their approach.

However, speaking on Sunday he said: “I will definitely not be in charge for the Euro 2016 qualification campaign. I don’t know where I will go next. Normally I go with my pension, and go to live in Portugal [where he owns a property], but maybe there will come a new challenge. I have said before that a challenge should be a club in the Premier League. That’s a challenge. Maybe Tottenham are coming but, first, we have to go to Brazil.”

Meanwhile. Sherwood himself was disappointed after watching his team lose 1-0 to Norwich, saying: “It’s a big gap, a real blow to us. It’s the first major setback I’ve had and we need to bounce back and show what we are made of.”
