Van Gaal 'not retiring'

Louis van Gaal says he is not definitely done with football just yet, after appearing to suggest earlier this week that he was retiring from the game at 65.

The Dutchman, who was sacked by Manchester United last year after an uninspiring stint at Old Trafford, had told popular daily tabloid De Telegraaf: "I don't believe I'll return to work."

But less than a day later van Gaal rowed back on that, telling Spanish radio that nothing was final and his future "depends on offers" at the end of what he has called a sabbatical.

"I am not retiring," van Gaal, whose decorated coaching career included two spells at Barcelona and with the Dutch national side, told Cadena Ser radio.

"I took a sabbatical year and then maybe I will decide whether or not to retire. "
