    Tottenham still eyeing Louis Van Gaal as manager despite giving Tim Sherwood the job


    Chairman Daniel Levy said to have been highly impressed by Holland boss during almost six hours of talks but will have to wait until after the World Cup

    Tottenham's talks with Louis van Gaal will continue in the New Year.

    The Holland boss is set to meet Spurs chairman Daniel Levy again in January. The duo had talks last Sunday, within hours of Sunday Mirror Sport exclusively revealing that the 62-year-old Holland coach was on the White Hart Lane wanted list.

    Levy flew by private jet to Holland last Sunday morning and was taken by car to Van Gaal’s exclusive penthouse *apartment in the Dutch seaside resort of Noordwijk.

    They spent almost six hours in talks, and watched the North Londoners' victory at Southampton on television, before Levy headed home.

    Van Gaal insisted he could not job-share the Spurs job with his role as Holland’s head coach. And the following day Levy gave the Tottenham manager’s job to Tim Sherwood on an 18-month deal.

    But informed sources in Holland insist Levy was highly impressed with Van Gaal and that the interest in him joining Spurs after the World Cup finals remains intact.

    Van Gaal presented Levy with a detailed dossier of his blueprint for the White Hart Lane club's future. He based it along the lines of the impressive work he did at Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

    In Holland, football insiders are convinced Van Gaal will join Spurs.

    Ruud Gullit, the former Chelsea boss, said: “I am really curious how Van Gaal will do when he arrives. It makes me want to follow everything he is going to do and change.

    “Van Gaal has his own style. He is so strong and so dominant. But of all the clubs in the Premier League, Tottenham will suit him better than any other.

    “Why? Because Tottenham has always been a footballing side. They have gone back to defensive football and playing with a kind of fear to lose.’’

    Gullit added: “The great thing about Van Gaal is that he will not want new players. He thinks there is enough quality there. Spurs have a good squad.

    “‘You can do more with that squad’, is his motto. Right now they won’t be able to bridge the gap on the League leaders. They have to start playing in a different style if they want to achieve things.”

    During his career Van Gaal has been a winner and will not be intimidated by taking on Wenger, Pellegrini or Mourinho.

    dingdong Advocaat, the former Holland boss, said: “Tottenham is a fantastic club who are very wealthy and he can achieve what he has done elsewhere. Van Gaal is a guy who will add something in the Premier League.’’

    Gullit understands why many English fans want their club to appoint an English manager.

    “They want to go back to English coaches,” he said. “So in that way I would love a guy like Sherwood to do well. But right now he could still do with the presence of Van Gaal.’’

    One of the very few candidates out there that I truly believe not only can, but will bring greatness to our club.

    He would be the highest calibre manager that we've ever appointed, so it would be very exciting. Would it be successful, or would the Spurs curse strike?

    Indeed. The man to put a glide in our stride, a dip in our hip and to start bringing in some long overdue silverwear.

    To be fair, it's quite a lot of noise coming from Dutch football people, rather than people who hate Sherwood (Gutter Boy).

    And they keep saying "when", rather than "if" he takes over.

    I think Sherwood has been put in charge now because Levy believes he can get someone better in the summer than what's available now. It's in Sherwood's interest that he comes out of this looking good regardless of whether he actually stands a chance of being here next season. There will be job openings at bottom half clubs soon enough.

    Anyone as long as the clown we have now isn't in charge.

    I voted de Boer though.

    well then hopefully if LVG is assured to take over after the Wc you should be very happy...no?

    maybe you even start wanting us to win to finish as high as possible to benefit ol Louis eh???

    go an go an go an you know you want to.

    Which would be better?

    Finish outside the top 4, United get a CL spot and we get Van Gaal

    or

    sneak into 4th, United replace Moyes with Van Gaal and we get to keep Sherwood?

    First.

    We've survived without CL football before, we'll survive it again. Van Gaal > Sherwood.

    I'd want it formally confirmed first. But the imminent arrival of LVG would definitely restore some hope for the future.

    A mediocre finish from Deadwood though might convince Levy to keep scrimping for another year.

    Definitely the first. No hesitation. We're only going to properly progress through the long game.

    Levy doesn't work that way -- if he believes that he can improve the club by firing whoever is in charge and getting a replacement, he does so, without regard for how well that manager might be doing. See Jol-to-Ramos or Redknapp-to-AVB.

    So if Levy thinks Van Gaal is the man, he will ruthlessly axe Sherwood pretty much wherever we finish (bar a miracle of winning the league or something ridiculous).

    Under those specific conditions I agree with you. United would bounce back big time with him in charge, bye bye top 4 for us. If they decided to stick with Moyes I'm undecided.

    seriously if you would that good would you join spurs after the series of high profile departures? I think we're going to be left bad and the ugly for a while until things look more stable.
