Louis van Gaal on the Chelsea job
From Man United to Chelsea
One of the transfer rumours in the English press on Sunday linked former Man United boss Louis van Gaal with Chelsea.
The story was spun by the Sunday Mirror.
Of course, Van Gaal is currently out of work following his stint in the Man United dugout.
But could he really replace Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge this summer? The Mirror told their readers the following:
Louis van Gaal is the shock name in the frame to replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge hierarchy have considered the experienced Dutchman if Conte’s relationship with the London club completely breaks down.
Van Gaal, 66, is looking for a short-term job – and is desperate to have another crack at the Premier League after being axed by Manchester United in 2016, just a day after winning the FA Cup.
Louis van Gaal talks about Chelsea
So is there any truth in the Chelsea rumours?
On Sunday Louis van Gaal appeared on Dutch TV.
Indeed, the former Man United boss was back at Wembley to act as a pundit for the Carabao Cup final between Man City and Arsenal.
When the issue of Chelsea was posed to LVG, he smacked it down as “fake news”.
So will the Sunday Mirror have to justify their story? No, of course not.
