Louis Van Gaal

Former Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal (LVG) has announced his retirement from football.

LVG told Dutch media channel VTBL that he has no ambition to continue to work either as a technical director or as a TV pundit.

The 67-year-old had earlier denied retirement from football in 2017 and that he was on a sabbatical leave.

The Dutch tactician has now confirmed his retirement from football three years after his last managerial job in the Premier League.

LVG was the Manchester United manager for two years before he was sacked in the summer of 2016.

He had been appointed the Manchester United manager in 2014 and he took charge of the Red Devils shortly after leading the Dutch national team to third place at the FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

LVG was sacked in 2016 after Manchester United finished outside the Champions League places despite leading the Red Devils to the FA Cup triumph.

Before his job with Manchester United and Dutch national team, LVG had managed clubs like Ajax Amsterdam and Barcelona.

He won 20 trophies during his football career over the course of the 899 games managed.

The trophy haul includes the 1994/95 Champions League title which he won with a young team.

He won the Champions League title at Ajax Amsterdam via a 1-0 victory over AC Milan.
