Van Gaal to quit after Brazil

Louis van Gaal has announced he will resign as Netherlands coach after the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Van Gaal is in his second spell as Dutch head coach, having taken over from Bert van Marwijk in July 2012, and has led his country to the top of their qualification group, having won their first six games.

Currently nine points clear of second-placed Hungary, the Netherlands’ place in Brazil looks assured and Van Gaal has now confirmed it will be his last foray in management, “unless an attractive club from the Premier League” comes forth.

“I took over as national coach with the ambition of going to a World Cup or a European Championship,” he said.

“I have never done this before and I am doing everything to make sure I can achieve it. After that I will leave.

“I am constantly having to borrow other coach’s players and I don’t enjoy that.

“At the end of the day, what I love is being with my players every day and working with them on the pitch.”

Van Gaal previously managed the national side between July 2000 and February 2002, before being sacked for failing to qualify for the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.
