Lazio look at Van Gaal

Lazio President Claudio Lotito is considering the appointment of a foreign Coach – such as Dutch legend Louis Van Gaal.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the man sacked by Bayern Munich in April 2011 is a possible target.

The Biancocelesti are looking for a new tactician after Edy Reja announced his intention to quit the Olimpico outfit.

Van Gaal, 60, is not the only big name being linked with the job though, as Galatasaray’s Fatih Terim and Didier Deschamps of Marseille are being mentioned too.

Terim has Serie A experience with Fiorentina and Milan, while former Juve midfielder Deschamps bossed the Old Lady in Serie B following Calciopoli.

Van Gaal has taken charge of AZ, Ajax, Barcelona and the Holland national side in his career to date.

Italian names associated with Lazio in recent weeks included Gianfranco Zola, Gian Piero Gasperini, Walter Mazzarri of Napoli, Gigi Del Neri and Chelsea’s Roberto Di Matteo.
