Contrary to the news been reported around by the tabloids claiming Louis van Gaal has retired  after an illustrous football coaching career was denied by the dutchman.

The former Manchester United boss claimed he was only on a sabbatical and he is yet to decide if he would retire from football.He was quoted by a spanish radio to have said “No. I am going to take a sabbatical year and then maybe. I will decide yes or no. It is not definitive.

He went on futher saying”Maybe I retire. But in this moment, I do not know. It is not the moment to decide.“For personal reasons I have taken a sabbatical year and after that I will decide. Depending also on the offers, it will be my decision to return or not.”

The dutchman also claimed he turned down an offer from La Liga outfits Valencia and he also turned down lucrative offers to continue his coaching career in the Far East.

Louis van Gaal believes the F.A cup he won at united is the greatest achievement of his caereer because his last six months at United were tough.He has won the La Liga with Barcelona ,Eredivisere with Ajax and Az alkmaar,Budesliga with Bayern munich.He led Ajax to win the Uefa cup in 1992 and champions league in 1996 which brought to limelight the likes of seedorf,overmars,kanu nwakwo,edwin van der saar and patrick kluivert.
