Louis van Gaal targetted for managerial return after Manchester United sacking

Louis van Gaal’s tenure at Manchester United ended abruptly last month despite his FA Cup success in his final game as manager, however the Dutchman is set to be offered a way back into football management.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the 64-year old is one of a number of names on the shortlist for Serie A club, AC Milan, who are looking to replace Sinisa Mihajlovic. Van Gaal is not the only name to be linked with taking over at the Rossonieri, with Frank de Boer and Andre Villas Boas also named in the article.

During his time at Old Trafford, Van Gaal repeatedly insisted that the Manchester United job would be his last in football management, but after the disappointing end to his reign, he may be tempted to have one final crack in management, and his first role in Italy.

Van Gaal was sacked after failing to achieve a Top 4 finish in his second season, despite bringing the FA Cup back to Old Trafford for the first time in twelve years.
