Dutch coach Van Gaal extends stay at Bayern Mnchen
Dutch football coach Louis van Gaal has signed a contract extending his tenure at Bayern München by another year until 2012. The Bavarian club is in the Swiss city of Basel for Tuesday’s match against FC Basel 1893 in Group E of the Champions League.
Mr Van Gaal said he was happy to be offered the opportunity to stay on for an additional year. “It’s great to grab prizes, a top team like Bayern will provide me with ample opportunities to do that”.
The extension of Mr van Gaal’s contract does not come as a surprise. Despite the worst start of the competition in 33 years, Bayern’s management has expressed full confidence in the Dutch coach.
