Following his side’s 2-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has revealed that he could extend his stay at Old Trafford by signing a new contract. The Dutch legend had earlier said that the Red Devils managerial post will be the last job in his illustrious career.
Van Gaal’s cureent deal with United runs till 2017 but the 63 year old claimed that he could stay beyond his current contract. Manchester Evening News have quoted the Dutchman saying to the club’s official site, “It can still be five years, I can extend my contract.”
“I have promised my wife but you never know. What I have said before, you always have to be in the situation and then you can decide. Now I am in the situation where I have signed for three years because in three years’ time you can build up something. They (the club) would agree with that.”
“I don’t know how I shall react in the circumstances when Manchester United ask me extend, and if I shall do that. But this is my last club.”
United are current fourth in the Premier League standings, five points clear of Liverpool in fifth place, in their quest for a Champions League berth for next season.
