Van Gaal unveils at the Orange: Martins Indi wont make it to the World Cup

Bruno Martins Indi is not coming to the World Cup. Thats what national coach Louis van Gaal told after the meeting between the Netherlands and Belgium. Due to his injury, Martins Indi will not be fit in time for the final tournament in Qatar.
Martins Indi was injured against Ajax last week, so he had to opt out of the past two international matches of Orange. Now Van Gaal reveals that AZ
s stopper will not be present at the World Cup either. โ€œMartins Indi wont make it,โ€ says Van Gaal in front of the ESPN camera.
The practice master is now looking for an extra option as a left central defender, behind Nathan Akรฉ. โ€œI also wanted to see Malacia in that place, which is why Akรฉ was switched against Belgium. Because Martins Indi isn
t going to make it, I have to look at other players who can play there.โ€
In an interview with DecceIT, Van Gaal announced that he was moderately satisfied with Malacia at the center of defense. Defensively, the Manchester United player did well, but according to Van Gaal, Malacia dropped some stitches in the build-up.
