AD: Van Gaal polled the voting of ‘headpieces’ Van Dijk, Wijnaldum and Memphis

The KNVB officially made Louis van Gaal‘s comeback on Wednesday. The trainer will work as a national coach for the third time and must lead the Dutch team to the World Cup of 2022: according to Algemeen Dagblad, Van Gaal had already been in touch with the defining players of Orange during the exploratory conversations.
Shortly after the lost EK match against the Czech Republic, it became clear that Frank de Boer’
s position was untenable and that Van Gaal was โ€œnot unwilling in advanceโ€ against the union coachship. Shortly afterwards, the KNVB summit traveled to Portugal for a meeting with the old acquaintance. According to the Algemeen Dagblad, Van Gaal then sounded the vote in ‘the headpieces of the Dutch team: the captain Virgil van Dijk, deputy captain Georginio Wijnaldum and driver Memphis Depay. โ€œThe outcome of that scan was positive,โ€ the AD said.
Wijnaldum and Memphis already collaborated with Van Gaal during his previous period as a national coach: in 2014 they returned from Brazil with a bronze World Cup medal. Van Dijk โ€” who had to skip the previous European Championship โ€” made his international debut after that tournament in 2014.
In mid-August, Van Gaal will announce his first pre-selection in view of the important international period of early September. The Dutch team will play World Cup qualifiers against Norway, Montenegro and Turkey.
