Louis Van-Gaal is known for his boisterous reactions to media and other managers in England. He wasn’t always like that. Back in the day, he was a hot coach in the Netherlands and Spain. He even won the Champions League with Ajax. So he checked the boxes that United wanted to fill with their next manager after David Moyes.
Now, a lot of water has passed under the bridge but Van-Gaal is still corny about his stint in England. He followed in the managerial post of United after guiding Netherlands to a surprise World Cup run in 2014 World Cup. He won them the FA Cup in his final season.
Daniel Levy wanted Louis Van-Gaal to replace Tim Sherwood at Spurs
Now, in a widespread interview with the Guardian, Louis Van-Gaal has let out another skeleton from his closet. This one is in the shape of one Daniel Levy. Yes, because according to Louis Van-Gaal, Daniel Levy was in his living room.
“I could sign also for Tottenham Hotspur and I have said to my wife that Tottenham had the better selection [of players] than Manchester United.
“But I chose United for the challenge and because I have always managed the number one club in a country!”

So, in a nutshell this is what the Guardian interview of Louis Van-Gaal is all about: I came to England, in the biggest club commercially. They didn’t get the players I wanted. I didn’t get the results they wanted. In the end, we broke up but like high school kids. And like high school kids are, I’m still pissed about it. Oh! I also rejected that one particularly hot girl, who’s all the rage these days- yeah! Tottenham, she was in my room and I didn’t do nothing. And she had the best assets.
Or something of the sort! Who cares? Right? Right.
