Ruud Gullit crosses the praise trumpet over Louis van Gaal. The former Orange international sees the national coach opting for the best players, not taking sentiment into account.
“I admire Van Gaal”, Gullit starts with Rondo about the Amsterdam practice master. “He chose not sentiment at Orange, but for the best players. He finds Berghuis the best right winger and has chosen to do so. He thinks De Vrij is the best defender and he has drafted them, instead of De Lout. Donny van de Beek doesnt play and he hasnt selected them. In doing so, Van Gaal indicates that he chooses the best players.”
“I think thats a huge improvement,” Gullit continues. “These guys showed it. He has also given young players a chance, such as Gakpo and Timber. Whether it makes sense for the coach to set up the best players? Yes, but that doesnt always happen,” he concludes.
🦁 @OnsOranje has the wind again! @GullitR is impressed and praises national coach Louis van Gaal. “He chooses the best players in the best place. That doesnt always make sense.” 🙌 #RONDO #ZiggoSport pic.twitter.com/zwiFCO8ZyH
