“Manchester United, where I last as a coach have worked, is a commercial club,” explains Van Gaal in conversation with Sport Bild. “Very different than Bayern Munich. There are old players, Rummenigge and Hoeneß is the boss, that know what they are talking about. For them, football is the most important, not money, as at present at United is the case. Therefore, I love Bayern.”

A comeback of Van Gaal at the Rekordmeister, however, is not obvious. “Not as long as Hoeneß, there is,” said the 66-year-old Amsterdammer. The coach did say that in his time at Bayern several times with the ex-international, including Phillip Lahm, Thomas Müller and David Alaba.

“I put Lahm right back, but Hoeneß wanted that I him rear put. Eventually, Lahm as right back world champion and he won the Champions League. I have so right. With Müller and Alaba said Hoeneß told my wife, Truus, that I put the wrong players fielded.”

Van Gaal was in 2011 eventually dismissed.Between 2014 and 2016, he was at the helm at ManUnited.
