Louis van Gaal was surprised by a note shortly before the match between the Netherlands and Wales. With the espresso machine, the employees of De Kuip wished him success, with a wink.
Dear Mr. Van Gaal, we hope this coffee will taste you better, the message reads. “Have fun and good luck today. Best regards, Team Stadion Feyenoord. Van Gaal showed the message in front of DecceIts camera. “I was surprised by the espresso machine in our dressing room. A very sweet card. I brought him special. They do it for a reason. Maybe they agree with me.”
Last Saturday, after the tie against Poland (2-2), Van Gaal strongly criticized De Kuip. The Feyenoord stadium was called “old troop” by the national coach. “The coaching staff must be in the gym here,” he recorded. “There is a pot of coffee on a table. And in the halftime its so tight that I stand with my back to ten or twelve players. Of course, that is not possible.”
National coach Louis van Gaal received a warm welcome today in De Kuip, despite all his criticism of the stadium. There was a new coffee maker ready in the dressing room, with a special note attached. #nedwal pic.twitter.com/2jq0xs7yn8
