Van Gaal will find that the Dutch School does not lead to Orange

Louis van Gaal has Saturday in an interview with the Algemeen Dagblad, the style of play of the Dutch national team criticized. According to the 66-year-old coach should the Dutch School not be used as a basis.

“I think that the Dutch football school not leading to how you are going to play”, says Van Gaal in conversation with the AD. “The quality of the player base should be leading.”

He calls the 0-0 draw in Luxembourg in the away game against France as an example. Three days before it went Orange with 4-0 down at ‘Les Bleus’.

“It is typical: within three days, it was confirmed that Luxembourg is, however, a system can select and execute the one that fits their own qualities compared to the qualities of the opponent.”

Never fired

According to Van Gaal had Guus Hiddink and Danny Blind never fired should be as coach of Orange. “I find that a coach will not be fired should be during a kwalificatiecyclus.”

“You get guys, but eight times in a year. In that precious time, you have vision to see across,” he continues. “That is much harder than in a club.”

In addition to the adherence to the Dutch football school calls Van Gaal also the lack of chemistry between the cast of actors and the coach as one of the causes of the disappointing performance of the Dutch national team in the world cup kwalificatiecyclus.


So can Orange still the world cup pick


“The ‘process’ is in the interim is always much more difficult to launch than at the beginning of a cycle. And that is again confirmed by what you see now”, says the former trainer of Ajax and FC Barcelona.

“You can’t say that the Dutch team is overflowing with the spirit? While spirit is so important and a Lawyer is just a good coach.”

Van Gaal was in may last year fired as manager of Manchester United. That meant his last job as a trainer, he puts the door well ajar for a return.

“I’m still so in that Manchester United my last job. I am last year asked for almost every function in the KNVB and have all said ‘no’. I am ready, in principle, but never say never.”
