Van Gaal eyes Bayern role

14 April 2009 07:21
Louis van Gaal thinks he is the man to revive Bayern Munich's fortunes. The Dutch coach is currently in charge of AZ Alkmaar who are on the verge of clinching the Eredivisie title. Bayern's appalling display in last week's 4-0 Champions League drubbing at Barcelona has left head coach Jurgen Klinsmann struggling to hold on to his job. Van Gaal's current AZ deal expires at the end of next season and he told NRC Handelsblad: "I'm not interested anymore in joining a small team. "However, I can definitely see myself in charge at a big team such as Bayern Munich. "The AZ president and the fans want me to extend my stay at the club and become AZ's Alex Ferguson. However, I still have the ambition to coach a big team or a national side and I will certainly leave AZ in 2010."
