Louis van Gaal believes if he had joined Tottenham Hotspur instead of Manchester United it could have been a better outcome for him.
Van Gaal replaced David Moyes at Manchester United as United had been going through a crisis period. But his style of playing had gone through severe criticism as it hardly resembled the United legacy.
The Dutch maestro went on to spend just two years at the club and The Red Devils lifted their 12th FA Cup title under his tutelage. Despite guiding the club to the trophy he had to make way for Jose Mourinho who took charge after him.
Van Gaal who was famous for his youth management insisted he might have chosen the wrong club as he believes managing at Spurs would have been easy for him.
“Tottenham were a better selection because Manchester United were an old team and I knew I would have to transform them.
“Was it the wrong choice? Maybe, but I follow my heart. I worked at the number one team in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and now also in England.
“They had seven players over 30. We spoke about that at the job interview. In my first year we qualified for the Champions League. In my second we won the FA Cup.”
