Louis van Gaal set for return to management five years after Man Utd axe with Dutch second-tier minnows SC Telstar

LOUIS VAN GAAL is set to make a return to management – five years after being sacked by Manchester United.

The 69-year-old will take charge of Dutch second-tier club SC Telstar next season.

However, Van Gaal will boss the club – based in North Holland – for just one game as part of a fundraising drive.

Supporters can buy lottery tickets for the chance to serve as his assistant during the match.

Van Gaal played in midfield for Telstar in  the 1977-78 season before joining Sparta Rotterdam.

And now he's set to return as manager for a one-off fixture.

The Dutchman told fans: "If you want to make a mess of a game alongside me, buy a lottery ticket."

The tickets cost £2.50 each, with the draw to be made on July 17.

Other prizes include Dutch Grand Prix tickets, PlayStations, shower units and football kits.

Former Holland, Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Van Gaal spent two seasons at Old Trafford.


He led Man Utd to the 2016 FA Cup when they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 after extra time.

But he was shown the door soon afterwards.

During his reign, the Red Devils only managing fourth and fifth-place Premier League finishes.

Van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho in the Old Trafford hotseat.
