louis van gaal Twitter screenshot Although many people do not like this, I really can not say that I have retired. If I hadnt heard anything in July of this year, then I might have really retired. In January 2017, Van Gaal once announced that his coaching career was over. 66 years old, he had been a team of famous teams such as Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern and Manchester United, and he had won many championships. Do you know if Van Gaal will return this time? Lets wait and see.
