Bayern Munich forward, Thomas Muller, has revealed the strength of the relationship he has with Van Gaal.
The Dutchman was in charge of Bayern Munich for two years and Muller was a star in his 2009-10 double winning side.
Rumors floated around last summer that Van Gaal has made Muller his priority signing, but the German international has decided to honor his contract with Bayern.
“It’s a secret for nobody,” he is quoted as saying by The Independent.
“Louis van Gaal and I have a relationship that goes beyond that which is normal between a player and a coach.
“However, I have a contract wtih Bayern until 2017.”
