After they dismissed German hero Jurgen Klinsmann earlier this season, Bayern Munich today announced Dutchman Louis Van Gaal as their manager. This puts the big guy back on the big stage. Great appointment.
Van Gaal is an ambitious man who has achieved much success in his homeland. His Ajax team dominated Dutch football in the 1990’s. They won the Eredivisie 3 times. They also won the UEFA Cup and the Champions League. His team was a who’s who in Dutch football. Edgar Davids. Patrick Kluivert. Marc Overmars. Edwin van der Sar. Brothers Frank and Ronald De Boer. They were simply delicious.
