How time flies – since his sack a few days ago from Old Trafford; former Manchester United manager, flying Dutchman Louis van Gaal, cut a far more relaxed figure than in his final turbulent days, weeks and months at Old Trafford as he dined in the sunshine with his wife after escaping to his holiday home on the Algarve in the southernmost region of continental Portugal in Europe.

In contrast to the series of increasingly annoyed appearances he made before leaving Manchester United, Van Gaal appeared in a tranquil mood as he strolled through the luxury golf and beach resort of Vale de Lobo with his wife Truus, while wearing shorts, a casual polo shirt and matching blue loafers.
The couple dined at al fresco under the Portuguese sunshine with the former Holland manager enjoying a glass of white wine while possibly contemplating a future away from football after trophy-winning stints in his homeland, Holland, Spain, Germany and now, England.
I wish the flying Dutchman all the best in his retirement.
