FC Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal has his own mind. A current example is when the Dutchman talks about his own future. Van Gaal has a contract until summer 2012 with Bayern Munich, but as he himself says he is considering four options for his own future following the end of his contract.
Speaking to the Sunday edition of the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung he talked about those four options. Number one is to become the coach of a big national team and lead them into the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, number two is to return to his home club Ajax Amsterdam and become the clubs Director of Sports, number three is to extend his contract at Bayern Munich, while number four would be to end his coaching career altogether.
A few days earlier he had told German tabloid Bild something similar, "After 2012 I will only sign one more contract, either extending with Bayern, with a national team or at Ajax Amsterdam as general manager.
And van Gaal had also said, "I'm not working for the money any more. I am just doing it for fun."
Such interviews and those personal options once more highlight Louis van Gaal and his character. He is a straight forward guy, who likes to organise and plan things, ideally well in advance and even if it looks arrogant he shows what he is capable off and what we wants. The only real ambition left for him as a coach is to guide a team in a FIFA World Cup.
