Van Gaal set to be handed new Bayern Munich deal

Van Gaal’s current contract expire in the summer of 2011, but the Dutchman is impressing at Bayern.

“We are keen on having stability and when this form of continuity means successful work with manager Louis van Gaal then there will be nothing standing in his way,” Rummenigge told Deutsches Sport-Fernsehen.

“So June 2011 will then not be the end of the flagpole.

“It is a fact that the manager and the squad have made an adaptation and have pushed each to their current level now.

“No-one has to forget we had to deal without Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben in the first months.

“It is a fact no-one can replace such quality players without a struggle. Now they are back and now they are giving a boost to the team with their skills.

“And this is being paired with the great work of the manager.”
