Louis Van Gaal Admits He Was A Childhood Spurs Fan And Says Man Utd Will Be His Last Job
In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph, Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal admitted that when he was a kid, he was a big fan of Spurs. The Dutchman also said that the United job would be his last and he intends to go out at the top.
LvG says Jimmy Greaves was one of the main reasons for supporting Spurs as a child.
“I was a football fanatic. I watched every game. When I was young, about 10, I was a great fan of Tottenham Hotspur, and a great fan of Jimmy Greaves.
"Unbelievable. It was on our television! The FA Cup! At that time there were not many football matches on television. I watched Tottenham and of course United, George Best, Bryan Robson and after that David Beckham. But as a boy I was more a fan of Tottenham Hotspur. I’m sorry to say that! Nice white shirt!"
Louis van Gaal went on to say that the Manchester United job would be his last as he wants to spend more time with his family.
“I am also old. This is my last job. For sure. I have to pay attention to my kids, my grandchildren but also to my wife. They deserve it. Now I cannot pay that attention. I was not at the birthday of my grandson for example. I don’t like it.”
