The Dutch coach appeared on the front page of Bild sports section on Monday morning along with two other coaches.
The German Football Association announced on Sunday that it had officially parted ways with Flick. The reason was because of this team’s series of disappointing results, the 1-4 loss to Japan caused him to be officially fired. The host team of the 2024 European Championship must now look for a new national team coach.
Van Gaal was quickly nominated by Bild and is still considered a possible candidate: “An interesting foreign candidate”.
He himself expressed his views on a new job: “I no longer work at the club, but a promising country still has a chance to convince me!”
However, the DFB appear to see Julian Nagelsmann as the leading candidate. He has not returned to the field since being fired by Bayern Munich. The names of Oliver Glassner, Matthias Sammer and Rudi Voller were also put forward. In the poll accompanying the article, Van Gaal ranked third among the proposed candidates.
