Netherlands Appoint Former Manchester United Boss Louis Van Gaal As Manager by insidenaijasblog: 1:43pm On Aug 04
The Netherlands have reappointed Louis van Gaal as their manager for the third time, on a contract until the end of 2022, Newspremises reports.

Van Gaal is taking up the role as Netherlands boss for a third time, having previously led his country from 2000 to 2001 and from 2012 to 2014.

The 69-year-old will oversee the side's bid to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, with his contract running until the end of the tournament in Qatar.

Van Gaal told the Dutch FA's website: "Dutch football has always been close to my heart and national coaching is in my view a key position for the further advancement of our football.

"Moreover, I consider it an honour to coach the Dutch national team.

"There is little time for the next qualifying matches, which are immediately crucial for participation in the World Cup.

"The focus is therefore immediately 100 per cent on the players and the approach. After all, I was appointed for that.

"It is good to be back. By now I have already spoken to a number of players and the technical staff has been put together.

"I am very much looking forward to getting the job done together."

Van Gaal replaces Frank de Boer, who left his role following the Netherlands' shock defeat to the Czech Republic in the last 16 of Euro 2020 this summer.

Van Gaal led the Netherlands to third place in the 2014 World Cup, with their impressive run including a 3-0 win over Brazil and a 5-1 thrashing of then-world champions Spain.

ur opinion BT I tink winning trophies isnt a good yardstick to measure d success of a coach bcoz some coach met a made team n others met a hard one
do example pep won trophies with barca easily bcoz d players were on their peak n d Same PEp would struggle to win one if he returns to this current barca. why u tink say Xavi de run from barca??

When Pep Guardiola conquered europe by winning the sextuple in 2008/2009 season can you tell me the big player he bought or the big money move he had?, this was at time barcelona went trophyless a season before. He had to make do with what he has by bringing out the best in his players available to him and also giving guys in the academy like Sergio Bousquet, Pedro, Pique etc chance to proof themselves, who later turned out to be world class, Iniesta and co weren't really renowned not until Guardiola gave them more playing, many of you usually think Guardiola only performs when given cash to buy players forgetting he made history by building one of the world finest squad to grace the game without really spending much and also coming with no prior top team coaching career as he was only the coach of Barcelona B before he was appointed to be the head coach of Barcelona FC.

Re: Netherlands Appoint Former Manchester United Boss Louis Van Gaal As Manager by Bekermann(m): 11:46pm On Aug 04
Yeah. You've said it all. Louis VanGaal also did the necessary groundwork that enabled FC Bayern complete the treble in 2013. He promoted the likes of Alaba, Muller and Badstuber to the first team (of which two of these three Bayern trainees started the UCL finals in 2010 and 2013, then Muller and Alaba in 2020) where they destroyed every other team that crossed their part.

He made some shrewd signings like Arjen Robben from Real Madrid. He also transformed Bastian Schweinsteiger from a flying winger to one of the best central midfielders due to his technical ability on the ball. Remember he also won the league title in the Netherlands with AZ Alkmaar, under the noses of traditional heavyweights such as Ajax, PSV Eindhoven and Feyernoord. Louis VanGaal is a class act.

They actually signed Dani Alves from Seville for quite a big fee while Gerard Pique was brought in from Manchester United.

But I agree that other signings like Seydou Keita, Eidur Gudjohnssen, Alexander Hleb and Sylvinho were weird signings given Barças standards and the fact that more established team members like Ronaldinho, Deco, Lilian Thuram, Gianluca Zambrotta were farmed out of the team.

Pique wasn't a big name (I don't think he played up to 10 games in the league for man u sef),neither was Alves,pep must have seen talent in them..
