Louis Van Gaal Signs Bayern Munich Contract Extension

Van Gaal Commits At Least His Near Future To Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal has put pen to paper on a new contract which will extend his stay at the club a further year, taking him through to the summer of 2012. Van Gaal has lifted Bayern Munich to a Bundesliga title, a German league cup title, and the Champions League final, and will be looking for European glory in the future.

It seems Van Gaal has quashed rumours of taking up a national team job in the near future, but it will be interesting to see if he extends his stay in Bavaria passed 2012. The European Championship takes place in 2012, and after that tournament a few national jobs may open up if certain teams make early, disappointing exits from the competition. Then, van Gaal could make the move to the national level.

Louis van Gaal has quite a job ahead of him at Bayern Munich. He will be expected to continue the success he has brought to the club, and to continue the success the club has had throughout it’s history. Certainly not easy, given the injuries that have been creeping into the squad.

Louis van Gaal’s strong personality has made him a bit of a controversial figure in Germany, but it’s the results that count and at the end of the day van Gaal has delivered. Despite a rocky start to the new season, Bayern Munich look to be ready to bounce back and kick-start the new campaign. Securing van Gaal’s signature will bring just that added bit of stability to the side.

    I just hope they continue to lose enough points to make it interesting while doing their best to boost the Bundesliga’s co-efficient. It’s hard to hate a team w/so many homegrown players in their squad. So many really good homegrown players. You won’t find anything like that in England. Italy does a slightly better job, Ligue 1 better than that. The only team that can match Bayern in that regard is Barcelona. So it doesn’t always matter *too* much who’s coach, so long as he’s competent, if Bayern keep churning out such good players. Don’t want to give them, nor van Gaal too much credit!

      I think it’s still going to be a very interesting season. We’ve seen Bayern, and every other big team, have awful, unexpected results. Wolfsburg, for example, may go on a bit of a run now, but who knows! I can’t wait til it really gets going.
