Thomas Muller : Louis van Gaal my biggest influence

FC Bayern Munich midfielder Thomas Muller has revealed that Dutch manager Louis van Gaal has had the biggest influence on the player’s career so far.

“When we talk about my biggest influence I have to say Van Gaal,” Muller told Goal.

“He threw me in the deep end.

“I made my debut before he arrived [at Bayern Munich], but he was the one who relied on me more continually.

“For players during our active career, it is always difficult to talk about coaches – whether it is former or a current. It is difficult to say for a player who was the better coach. But I would say that my biggest influence was Louis van Gaal, because I was at the best age to be influenced.” Muller concluded.
