Louis Van Gaal takes on Tottenham Hotspur for the first time with Manchester United, after claiming to have snubbed an offer to become their manager.
The Dutchman was strongly linked with the club prior to David Moyes' dismissal as Red Devils boss in April, with Spurs appointing Mauricio Pochettino instead.
Former Spurs chairman Lord Sugar was asked on Twitter last night if he would have wanted Van Gaal at Spurs, and was clear in his response.
.@MrSid_Singh RT:as an ex-chairman, would you have LvG as your manager ma Lord?...simple answer NO. Wenger, but that's not possible— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 28, 2014
.@AAyerman RT:Wenger over LVG? You don't know what you're talking about....Oh yes I do— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) December 28, 2014
The businessman has been on record before admiring Arsene Wenger's longevity at Tottenham's rivals Arsenal, although as he realises, seeing him at Spurs would be not even a pipe dream.
He did not elaborate on his view on Van Gaal, but it's easy to see the two strong personalities clashing if working together.
Spurs are only five points behind United at present, which they can cut to two with a win. Sugar however is about as negative as it gets when it comes to the club's Champions League qualification hopes.
