Van Gaal almost took Spurs role

Newly appointed Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has sensationally revealed that he almost took the Tottenham managerial role. 



Van Gaal, the former Barcelona manager, is currently in charge of the Dutch national team and will move to Man Utd as soon as this summer's tournament is over.

However, Van Gaal has sensationally revealed that he almost took the Spurs job.

"It was very close, very close," said Van Gaal of a potential move to Tottenham. "As a little boy I was a fan of Tottenham Hotspur with the team of Jimmy Greaves when he was the champion. Jimmy Greaves was my idol. They had fantastic white shirts. So I was very close."
