Ex-Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal, 72, snubs offer to return to management and says 'my health comes first' | The Sun

FORMER Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that he has no intention of becoming Ajax boss.

The Eredivisie giants currently sit 14th in the league table with five points from four games.

Fans have become increasingly frustrated as a result of the club's poor form, with many reaching a boiling point at the weekend.

Thousands of supporters expressed their fury during Ajax's Eredivisie clash with Feyenoord on Sunday.

With the visitors leading 3-0 in the 55th minute, Ajax fans began to throw flares onto the pitch.

The referee subsequently abandoned the match for safety reasons, but fans continued to protest outside the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Riot police were called and tear gas was used to disperse the crowds.

The socking events prompted change within the club, with Sven Mislintat losing his job as Director of Football.

Manager Maurice Steijn is also understood to be at risk of leaving.

Van Gaal has been heavily linked with the job, but he recently admitted: "My health comes first."

Earlier this month, the Dutchman also revealed that he has no intention of returning to club management.

The ex-Man Utd manager is currently battling prostate cancer.

He announced his diagnosis ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

And in a recent TV interview, Van Gaal gave fans an update on his condition.

He said: “How am I doing? Well, I had surgery two or three weeks ago.

“They have tried to put everything in order, details of which I won't tire you with further, but now we have to wait and see.

“On September 19, I have to go back again and then everything will be decided – and then a miracle could take place that I am able to go the toilet by myself again.”
