Louis van Gaal is focusing his mind to Netherland national team. Positive result achieved by the flying dutchmen in the first game against spain. Let us pray that his work on National team could be transfered to the next generation of Manchester United.
Meeneer van Gaal was born August 8th, 1951 in Amsterdam. Currently he is managing Netherland national team in World Cup 2014 in Brasil. His first grup match against Spain was magnificent crushing the World Cup Champion five goals. He is an experienced manager who had manage these teams:
AZ Alkmar (as Assistant Manager)
Ajax Amsterdam (as Assistant Manager)
Ajax Amsterdam (Manager) | Eredivisie 1993-94,1994-95,1995-96 | KNVB Cup 1992-93 | Johan Cruijf Shield 1993-94,1994-95,1995-96 | UEFA Champions League 1994-95
Barcelona | La Liga 1997-98, 1998-99 | Copa Del Rey 1997-98 | UEFA Super Cup 1997
Louis van Gaal not just have award from the club he managed but also personal award, World Soccer of The Year (1995), Onze d’Or Coach of The Year (1995), Rinnus Michels Award (2007,2009), Dutch Sport Coach of The Year (2009), German Football Manager of The Year (2009). The government of Netherlands also give him Order of Orange-Nassau which have something in common with Order of British Empire only the different the recipient does not get a title.
Manchester United is hoping that his experience with different clubs and national team with help the club to gain the successful era previously left by Sir Alex Fergusson. The former Barcelona manager had said himself to be arrogant, dominant, and innovative which mean that the player must doing his tactic. His stubbornness cost him his job in Barcelona that is when he wanted Rivaldo, Barcelona’s Brazilian star, to play as the left wing contradicted to the players will. Wayne Rooney is the star of Manchester United and he had “bad” tempered with managers for example when he refused to renew his contract few years back when Sir Alex was in charge. Let’s hope van Gaal could find how to deal with Wayne and other Manchester United players so that the club have the good atmosphere, I mean the accident between Sir Alex, Beckham, and shoe in the changing room.
The management will change according to some gossip arround Old Trafford. The new coaching staff will emerge that will make question is class of 92 will separate? Giggs make a move when the season has ended to van Gaal’s house to talk with him and find himself as the manager assistant. So how about Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, and Phillip Neville? Do they will be in van Gaals coaching staff or they move out to other club develop their coaching career?
