Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has declined the Dutch FA’s offer to take up the technical director’s post in the summer, according to Dutch daily the Algemeen Dagblad.

With his future at Manchester United highly uncertain, the Netherlands were hoping to rope in the Dutchman as their technical director as they look to rebuild the team after failing to qualifying for this summer’s European Championship.

However, despite all the speculation surrounding his future at Old Trafford, Van Gaal has rejected his national team’s offer and is expecting to continue as Manchester United manager.

It has been suggested that results towards the end of the season will determine Van Gaal’s future at the club, despite Manchester United’s highly inconsistent performances throughout the campaign.

Manchester United are still within striking distance of the top four, and will play an FA Cup quarter-final replay against West Ham at Upton Park next Wednesday.  


Jose Mourinho has been widely tipped to become the next Manchester United manager in the summer, but Van Gaal is still hoping that he will be able to save his job with a strong end to the campaign.

The Dutchman has also stressed that Manchester United will be his last job and therefore, he could retire if he leaves the club in the summer.
