Louis van Gaal prepared to take Tottenham job

Published 4 Comments

Holland head coach Louis van Gaal would be prepared to take the Tottenham Hotspur job this summer, despite alleged managerial interest from Manchester United.

According to The Independent, the 62-year-old - who has already confirmed plans to leave his role with the Netherlands after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil - is willing to work with the north London club and will refrain from making wholesale changes.

Van Gaal is the favourite to succeed Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly ready to wield the axe again at the end of the season.

The Dutchman has already given assurances that he will not require a big transfer budget to mould the team he wants at Tottenham, which will be music to Levy's ears given the club's £100million outlay during the transfer window last summer.

Spurs could face competition for Van Gaal's signature from Manchester United, though, with the Daily Mirror reporting last month that Old Trafford officials were considering him as a possible replacement for current Red Devils boss David Moyes.

However, unless matters deteriorate significantly over the next couple of months, Moyes is expected to keep his job, clearing the path for Tottenham to make their move for Van Gaal unchallenged.
