Bayern Munich's coach Louis van Gaal said Friday that the next contract he signs will be his last before he retires, and that he won't necessarily stay with the German giants.

"After 2012 I will only sign one more contract, either extending with Bayern, with a national team or at Ajax Amsterdam as general manager," the Dutchman told Bild in an interview.

And Van Gaal made clear that he won't be swayed by any juicy pay offers. "I'm not working for the money any more," he said. "I am just doing it for fun."

He added: "I have a very nice life. A lovely wife, two beautiful children - and I have won lots of titles."

Defending Bundesliga champions Bayern are currently languishing sixth in the table, a massive 17 points behind leaders Dortmund, after an indifferent season so far plagued by injuries.

Bayern face strugglers Stuttgart on Saturday hoping to end their 2010 Bundesliga campaign on a high. After Christmas they are set to welcome back injured stars Arjen Robben, Germany veteran Miroslav Klose and striker Ivica Olic.
