Louis Van Gaal says that his last six months at Manchester United were like having his head in a noose.
Van Gaal ended his tenure at United with victory in the FA Cup final, but it was clear for a while that he would be leaving the club.
The Dutchman believes that made FA Cup victory extra sweet, and blamed the English Media for his failure.
“The last six months at United, the circumstances were so difficult,” Van Gaal said.
“My head was in a noose for six months.
“That is why the trophy I won, the FA Cup, I consider the biggest trophy in my career.
“I was standing on the gangplank for the last six months. My head was in the guillotine – put there by the English media.
“And then in those circumstances I was expected to stick to my vision and inspire the players.
“We went to the absolute climax of the FA Cup final, ending with 10 men and having to score to win in extra-time. Having gone through all that, and then walking away with the trophy, was incredible for me.
“I wanted to stop after the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 but then the opportunity to manage in England came up. And that was a fantastic country that is now also on my CV.
“I have a lovely pay-off from Manchester United. They still pay my wages every month and that is a nice sum.”
