Louis van Gaal is still bitter at his Manchester United axing and would welcome the opportunity to “get one over” on the Red Devils.
The experienced Dutchman got United back on the trophy trail in 2016 when he saw the club to FA Cup glory.
He was, however, to be unceremoniously removed from his post a year before the end of his contract as Jose Mourinho was handed the reins at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal insists that he now has no intention of getting back into club management, but the 66-year-old would “make one exception” if given the chance to exact revenge on United in a top Premier League post.
The Daily Mirror quotes him as saying in Rotterdam on Sunday evening: “I will probably not manage a club anymore.
“I would make one exception – if a big English club comes for me, then I would do it. Because then I can get the chance to get one over on Manchester United.”
