Netherlands national football team coach Louis van Gaal has revealed that he is suffering from prostate cancer and is undergoing treatment. Even after suffering from the disease, he wants to lead the team for the Qatar World Cup to be held in November. The 70-year-old coach said he visits the hospital all the time in the evening or at night. The players were not allowed to know about it. Van Gaal’s wife also died of cancer.
Louis van has done 25 radiation therapy-
Told in a program that his players are not aware that their coach is suffering from serious illness. Therefore, during the four training camps, he got his treatment done during the night.
He said that the people you are working with cannot be told about such illness as it can affect their choice and energy. So I thought they should not know. According to him, he has done 25 radiation therapy so far.
Made Netherlands third in the 2014 World Cup-
In his career spanning four decades of football coaching, Lewis led the Netherlands to the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup of Football. Also won league titles with Barcelona, Ajax, Bayern Munich and AZ Alkmaar.
He also led the Dutch in the Champions League in 1995. He spent two years with Manchester United and led the club to the FA Cup in 2016. The Netherlands have been placed in Group A at this year’s FIFA World Cup, which also includes Senegal, Ecuador and Qatar.
Koman will join the Netherlands team again after the FIFA World Cup-
After a disappointing stint with Barcelona, Ronald Koeman will once again join the Netherlands national football team after the World Cup. The Netherlands team will go under the guidance of Louis van Gaal in the World Cup but Gaal has already said that he will not be with the team after the tournament which ends on 18 December in Qatar.
For this reason the Dutch Soccer Federation has once again decided to add Koeman to the team. Koeman left the Netherlands national team less than two years ago to join Spanish club Barcelona, where he won several trophies as a player.
Koman was sacked in October after consistently poor results. “We were delighted with his work and the results during his first stint as coach,” said Dutch federation director Marianne Van Leuven.
