Ex-Man Utd Manager Quits Football

Ex-Manchester United and Netherlands manager, Louis van Gaal, says he has retired from coaching after 26 years of football.

He was sacked by Manchester United after winning the FA Cup in May 2016. 

I thought maybe I would stop, then I thought it would be a sabbatical, but now I do not think I will return to coaching, Van Gaal was quoted as saying in Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

Van Gaal. 65, had also worked in Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and AZ.  He made the announcement on Monday after the Dutch government gave him a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to football.

Van Gaal said family issues is his main reason:

So much has happened in my family, you become a human being again with your nose pressed to the facts, he said.

The Dutchman also revealed he turned down lucrative offers to continue his coaching career in the Far East.
