EPL: Van Gaal Blames 'Evil Genius' For Man Utd Sacking


In the English Premier League (EPL), former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal has blamed 'evil genius' Ed Woodward for his sacking in 2016.

Allnews recalls that the Dutchman did well with The Netherlands at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, before seeing red, despite winning the FA Cup with the British giants in May 2016.

He was replaced at Old Trafford by his former apprentice, Jose Mourinho.

On 17 January 2017, it was announced that Van Gaal had retired "for family reasons".

He later said that it was only a sabbatical.

On 12 March 2019, Van Gaal announced his retirement from football.

At present, the 68-year old is not too pleased with Manchester United's Chief Executive for the role the administrator played in his departure.

"I blame Ed Woodward, my CEO at Manchester United, much more than Mourinho," Van Gaal told the Een-tweetje met Yves podcast.

"In my view, Woodward is the evil genius."

Prior to joining United, Van Gaal also held talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who clearly wanted to keep his discussions with the trainer a secret as he attempted to leave in the boot of a car.

"Daniel Levy went to my house here in Noordwijk (Town in The Netherlands) and left in the trunk because Jack van Gelder [a local journalist] was outside", Van Gaal said.

"It took a long time and he actually gave Manchester United the opportunity to make an offer."
