Louis van Gaal has reaffirmed his interest in working in the Premier League next season -- but will not restrict his options to Tottenham.
Netherlands coach Van Gaal, 62, was heavily linked with the White Hart Lane post after the departure of Andre Villas-Boas earlier this season, before the job eventually went to Tim Sherwood.
The former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach is out of contract with the Oranje after this summer's World Cup and is keen to add a Premier League job to his impressive CV.
Van Gaal, in Brazil for a FIFA workshop for World Cup managers, told the Daily Mail: "I am mostly interested in England because I have been a coach in Spain, Germany, in the Netherlands so I think England is the next step in my career.
"It could be another club [other than Spurs], it depends on the vacancies because Spurs were already [in touch] with me.
"I prefer to be focused on this World Cup and now there's another coach [Sherwood] so as coach, you cannot say 'I go to that club or that club', it depends on circumstances."
