Nigel De Jong commends Louis Van Gaal, the Netherlands manager as having incredible quality whose management has helped the team and stated that Van Gaal feels more relaxed after taking his cancer treatment.
Van Gaal made an announcement previously that he is undergoing prostate cancer treatment in April 2022 and revealed unveiled that he went for 25 radiotherapy sessions to address this aggressive disease.
De Jong, the former Manchester City midfielder suggested that the experience of Van Gaal has now changed how he is as an individual after coming across as the general to multiple outside observers.
Before Netherlands’ game against Ecuador, he said that in their second Qatar World Cup 2022 group stage, De Jong mentioned that his former coach has been a well-rounded person who had been able to get out of all types of players.
He said that he had a spell under LVG in 2014 but it shows your human aspect and stated that many people see that he is hard on the outside but also a little arrogant. However, he has always been softer on the inside and he can mold the team without including superstars by making them understand that standing and playing together is all that they need on the pitch.
De Jong said that he has been hard and was general at times. However, according to him, it is an incredible quality and he is one of the most celebrated coaches. He believes that success cannot be achieved as you are and he is a manager of men and understands various types of players in the team.
Louis Van Gall is known to be a strong figure by many players in football. However, during this time as the coach of Man United, he showed all aspects of his character.
