He is back. Believe it or not, Louis van Gaal will take over the Dutch national team for the third time. After the “orange” had another failed tournament, the boss set to work what he always did.
Will Louis van Gaal be successful coach in Netherlands this time? Do you think the national team will win World Cup in 2022 with him? If you wanna make a bet on this, we recommend you trying 22Bet. Here you can check out football odds in Nigeria.
After an experiment with Frank de Boer, which from the very beginning seemed doomed to failure, the Dutch again turned to Van Gaal. In many ways, because few people are ready to take on such work at all.
They can be understood. Can. But Van Gaal is already 70. He last appeared on the sidelines in the FA Cup final, which he won. Soon after that, he will be fired, as journalists have hinted to him more than once. In response, they received only angry glances.
The Dutch Football Federation has long wanted to bring back van Gaal. In 2017, they thought to make him something like a technical director who would help with the selection of a new coach. But in the end, the plans fell through
Dutch football and Barcelona have been linked since the days of Rinus Michels and Johan Cruyff, but lately this connection has been bleak. If in 2020 the Catalans did not have a crisis brewing, they would not have risked inviting Ronald Koeman, who worked well with the national team. In fact, it was precisely this moment that doomed the Dutch, who had to urgently look for an alternative. Why the choice fell on De Boer, who failed at Inter, Crystal Palace and Atlanta, is difficult to say. Name, I guess.
When the director of the Netherlands Football Federation Niko-Jan Hogma was asked if he considered the appointment of De Boer a mistake, he replied simply: “I would not say that, but I am responsible for this decision.” It sounds kind of bad anyway.
Whoever was not called a potential candidate for the vacated post. Henk ten Kate, Peter Bosch, Rudy Garcia, Joachim Loew, Erik ten Hag and even Rud Gullit! However, the choice fell on a trusted person.
