Netherlands national team manager Louis van Gaal will be succeeded by Guus Hiddink after the 2014 FIFA World Cup, per ESPN FC.
What is a certainty is Van Gaal being a world-class manager.
"Look at my CV. I have won a trophy every season during my club career," Van Gaal said, per Dave Kidd at the Mirror. "Am I still in contact with Spurs? There will come a moment that I can talk about that."
Van Gaal, a UEFA Champions League-winning manager, has won titles in Germany, the Netherlands and Spain. If anything, he is overqualified to manage Spurs.
If there are no managerial vacancies at other major Premier League teams, then Spurs are in luck.
