After inviting migrant workers to train with the national team, the coach denies any future protests
In Holland, the subject is only one: football. In a press conference this Thursday morning, coach Van Gal put an end to political issues within the delegation of the Dutch national team. The coach has denied any type of future dispute and has ensured that the goal now is to lead his team to the title world Cup🇧🇷
“We have put an end to the political issues after already inviting migrant workers to join us. We have a clear goal to become world champions and we will not let FIFA or any other organization ruin it. We” We have already answered many questions about political issues, now let’s focus only on football” the coach said.
Even before starting the press conference, the Netherlands had already warned that they would only answer questions about football. Despite this, journalists persisted and even made a comparison with Germany, which protested and lost against Japan. Superstitious, Van Gaal will not risk having the same burden.
“Well, that’s the question. I don’t want to take the same risk. I’m here to become world champion,” said the coach, who embraced a reporter after the press conference after the press professional revealed he was a his fan.
The Dutch players are closed with the coach. Full-back Dumfries has been emphatic about the national team’s priorities. “We have already paid close attention to Qatar issues. We have invited migrant workers to our training. But we are here to play football and now everything has to be about football,” he concluded.
After leaving Manchester United, Van Gaal spent nearly five years in retirement before accepting an invitation to manage the Netherlands. When asked if he will end his career after the World Cup, the coach has put his continuity under control. Ronald Koeman already has an agreement to direct the selection.
“The question of whether I will play in the last tournament as national team coach is still a problem. I think so, but you never know. I keep saying so. I even took this job because no one else was available at the time. At least, this It’s my opinion. It’s been five years since I left Manchester, so that says it all” the captain said.
The Netherlands are back on the field this Friday, at 13:00 (Brasilia time), against Ecuador, at the Khalifa International Stadium. The selections share the leadership of Group A, with three points.
