Louis Van Gaal returns to management

Former Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has returned to management after a five-year hiatus.

Van Gaal was confirmed by Dutch second division side Telstar who said that the veteran tactician will be in charge of the team but only for one game.

The Dutchman has not managed a game since the 2016 FA Cup final for Manchester United, and he will return to the bench for one game only as a tribute to his remarkable coaching career.

The 69-year-old never coached Telstar but did play for them during the 1977-78 campaign, in part of a 15-year playing career.

In his coaching career, Van Gaal had two stints with Barcelona where he won two La Liga titles, a Copa del Rey crown, and a UEFA Super Cup and went to win 20 trophies across his coaching journey. Apart from Barca and United, he had stints with Ajax, AZ, Bayern Munich, and the Netherlands national team.
