Van Gaal: ‘The history repeats at FC Barcelona’

Louis van Gaal supports the criticized Frenkie de Jong. FC Barcelona runs badly and so the arrows are directed not only at trainer Ronald Koeman, but also De Jong. Van Gaal has a simple explanation for that.
De Jong is approached remarkably critically as Barcelona has started badly on the season. However, Van Gaal is not worried about his pupil. โ€œIf everything goes well and you contribute a lot like Frenkie de Jong has done for the past two years, there is nothing to worry about,โ€ says Van Gaal at the press conference on the role of De Jong.
โ€œBut if things dont go well, they always look first at the foreigners at Barcelona. And so to the trainer. In this case, the trainer is also a foreigner and a Dutchman. I experienced it myself at Barcelona. History repeats itself,โ€ says Van Gaal.
