Who Will Replace Louis van Gaal?




Louis van Gaal

Louis van Gaal

Bayern Munich fans danced in joy as Hamburger SV, Bayern’s bogey team, a team which Bayern had managed to defeat only once in the last seven days, were nothing but thrashed in last night’s encounter a must win for both the teams, if they were to qualify for Europe.  This was the last time that, Louis van Gaal would face Armin Veh as managers of FC Bayern Munich and Hamburger SV. With both clubs announcing their managers would be leaving, Bayern manager getting the sack at the end of the season and his Hamburg counterpart not was extending his contract. Indeed it was the last time Armin Veh would be on the Hamburg bench, Hamburgs biggest loss of the season cost him his job, whereas his Bayern counterpart might have redeemed his.

With Bayern Munich in serious shortage of replacements, replacing a manager of Louis van Gaal’s status was always going to be an impossible task. National team coach Joachim Loew was reported to have been zeroed on as the replacement, only for Bayern director of sport Christian Nerlinger to clear the air as pure speculation. Revealing that Bayern are not close on anybody, maybe they have just left the door open for Louis van Gaal to prove himself all over again and save his job.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness, heaped praise on legend Ottmar Hitzfield, hinting that he might be in for a third stint with Der Rekordmeister.  He also assessed the current managerial situation in Germany. Speaking to Swedish newspaper Blick, Hoeness is reported to have said “Ottmar will always remain a close friend of Bayern”.  Hitzfield enjoyed two stints with Bayern from 1998 to 2005 and 2007-2008.

“He is a great coach, a great man, has achieved a lot” Bayern legends praises sound like a plea asking him to take over.

Hoeness also spoke about his former beleaguered employee, Felix Magath, speaking further. “It looks as if Schalke will still sack Magath, he has failed to impress people around, I wonder how? Even after being in the quarter- finals of the Champions League and semifinals of the DFB Pokal ousting us.

Hoeness to echoed Nerlinger ‘s  sentiments, and claimed it was too early to discuss successors to the Dutch tactician, despite former Bayern star Thorsten Fink’s name coming up.

“Fink made history with us and I believe eventually he will be back in the Bundesliga, maybe he even one day he will go on to manage us in the future one day he will. But one day, we don’t know when.”

Bayern Munich face European champions Inter Milan in a bid for a place in the last eight of Europe’s premier competition,  with Bayern leading 1-0 and at home, coming back of a 6-0 win a full strength and highly motivated squad to choose from Bayern are favorites for this one.
