Karl-Heinz Rummenigge made Van Gaal “Van Gone”.
What he said:
“As soon as he presented his autobiography in a snobby restaurant, I knew hard times were ahead.Louis van Gaal was not always easy-care. He wanted to ‘Vangaalise’ our club. He has a huge ego.”
Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge terms former coach Louis Van Gaal “egoistic”.
Van Gaal was Bayern’s manager from 2009-2011.
The club clinched the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal in his first year.
What Rummenigge really meant:
“There’s only one alpha-male or alpha-dog at Bayern and that’s me. Van Gaal reported to me and any attempt to remake the club in his image would find opposition in me. PS: I have a huge ego, too.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I don’t have a queasy stomach. And restaurants are not where I would release my autobiography.”
