I have forgiven Mourinho, Guardiola best coach in EPL – Van Gaal


Former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal says he no longer holds a grudge against his successor, Jose Mourinho.

He, however, blasted United chief executive officer, Ed Woodward for not giving him more time at Old Trafford.

Mourinho replaced Van Gaal in the summer of 2016, after the former Bayern Munich boss was sacked despite winning the FA Cup in his final match in charge.

“I’m not disappointed in Jose Mourinho,” Van Gaal told Sport Bild.

“Every coach wants to manage Manchester United. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“Jose wanted that too and was given the opportunity to do so although he was sacked when he was 13th with a fantastic side like Chelsea. I am not accusing him of any wrongdoing but, on the other hand, my team had just come fourth.

“I don’t think it’s correct when a CEO says we are totally happy with you and the media doesn’t believe him. Then you win the FA Cup and you are sacked anyway.

Van Gaal then went ahead to hail Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, as the best in the Premier League.

“Pep Guardiola is currently the Premier League’s best coach,” he said.

“Pep has made [Manchester] City a machine. He is playing the type of football that I wanted at Manchester United. However, he has better players for that. I needed more time for this process, which I unfortunately didn’t get.”
