Van Gaal considered potential coach for Netherlands national team

Frank De Boer stepped down from his profile of Netherlands coach after a disappointing exit from Euro 2020. Following Boer’s confirmation, the role has been vacant and former Ajax, Barcelona, and Man Utd coach Louis van Gaal is considered the main contender for the post of head coach of the Netherlands national team. On Thursday, news broke that Van Gaal was the number one choice for the KNVB and a delegation flew to Portugal to hold talks with the 69-year-old.

Ahead of World Cup 2022, the Netherlands are seeking to replace coach Frank DeBoer with Louis Van Gaal. Netherlands media company AD writes, the federation’s governing body is in talks with the 69-year-old, who is currently based in Portugal. After a poor showing at UEFA EURO 2020, where the Netherlands crashed out in the last eight against the Czech Republic, they are leaning towards appointing an experienced coach. 

That said, following Ronald Koeman’s departure to Barcelona, the same management last year preferred Frank de Boer to Van Gaal, who has not worked as a coach since 2016. Van Gaal has previously worked with the national team twice. He first took charge of the Oranje in 2000 but failed to lead the team to the 2002 World Cup, after which he left his post. He took charge of the Spanish national side ten years later, finishing third at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
