Ruud Gullit claims Louis van Gaal to be next Tottenham manager is a 'done deal'
Gulliet believes that Tim Sherwood will be ousted as Tottenham boss in favour for current Dutch manager Van Gaal
Saturday 29 March 2014
Louis van Gaal is set to become Tottenham’s next manager with his move is a ‘done deal’ according to former Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit.
Van Gaal, currently in charge of the Netherlands, apparently met with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to discuss terms and Gullit claims the deal is all but finished.
Gullit told BBC Radio 5 live: “I know for sure the chairman of Tottenham was at Van Gaal's house. I think it's a done deal, but you never know.”
Guus Hiddink was confirmed as the next manager of the Dutch national side and will take over after the 2014 Brazil World Cup, leaving Van Gaal without a job and free to step into his next role.
Van Gaal, who has managed some of Europe’s elite including Barcelona and Bayern Munich, had English clubs on attention recently after he expressed his desire to take charge of a Premier League side, saying: “I've always said that I want to work in the Premier League, so there's a chance.”
Current Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood signed an 18-month deal in December but due to his side’s indifferent form this term, seems unlikely to see out that contract.
