Where next for Louis van Gaal?

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 25 May 2016, 12:37

Louis van GaalAll the focus at the moment is cemented on Jose Mourinho's impending appointment at Man Utd, while discarded boss Louis van Gaal has been largely forgotten in the melee since Monday's sacking.

Many expect the veteran Dutch manager to now draw the curtains on what has been a lengthy managerial career, but we at the Sack Race have a look at the 64-year-old's options in the managerial arena (odds courtesy of Sky Bet).

Any National Team @ 4/1

Prior to joining United LVG enjoyed a cracking two-year spell in charge of the Netherlands, which concluded with a third-place finish at the 2014 World Cup. Holland went on to endure a torrid Euro 2016 qualification campaign under Guus Hiddink, then Danny Blind, alarmingly finishing 4th in their group, and missing out on this summer's showcase spectacle.

The main focus now will be making sure they get to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and with LVG now available, could the Dutch FA be tempted to lure him back?

Juventus @ 6/1 or Inter Milan @ 10/1

LVG has managed in his homeland, England, Spain, and Germany, but rather surprisingly he has never ventured off to Italy. However, that could all change with Juventus and Inter Milan next on the betting for his next job at 6/1 and 10/1 respectively.

But, considering that both clubs currently have managers, it's AC Milan which seems a more likely option considering they've just sacked Sinisa Mihajlovic. Unfortunately there are no odds available at the moment, but this is definitely one to keep an eye on.

Everton @ 18/1

If LVG fancies staying in the North West then the current managerial vacancy at Everton could be a viable option. The Toffees appear to be no closer to appointing a new manager - having sacked Roberto Martinez a fortnight ago - with the likes of Manuel Pellegrini, Frank de Boer, and Ronald Koeman still hovering in the top echelons of the betting.

LVG has managed some of the biggest clubs in the world, although two years of disappointment at Man Utd may affect his chances of landing the job. But, considering how poor Everton were at the back last season, LVG's insistent focus on the defence could be just what the Toffees need.
