Former FC Bayern München manager Louis van Gaal says size matters if he is to be tempted back into football management, with reference to a couple of Bundesliga clubs.
After Borussia Dortmund sacked head coach Peter Bosz, his experienced compatriot was immediately linked with the post before they opted for Peter Stoger on Sunday.

However, the 66-year-old Dutchman, who has won 15 major trophies in his 26 years of management, revealed he rejected an offer from Bayer Leverkusen and if Dortmund were to come calling in the off-season, he wouldn't be interested.
"I had an offer from Bayer 04 Leverkusen, which is a club tailored for me, with many young talents," he said, before immediately adding the approach was turned down.
"I think Dortmund is not comparable to Bayern, so no. Nowadays, as a coach, you do not have that much time, so I cannot change enough to turn a small club into a big club."
