Former Netherlands coach, Louis Van Gaal, stunned everyone during the Eredivisie awards ceremony held yesterday Monday, when he emphatically stated that the World Cup won by Argentina was ready. The man who was the coach of the Netherlands at the time, who was defeated by Scaloni's team in the semifinals, did not accept defeat a year later and fired a bullet without providing evidence.
"When you see how Argentina scores the goals and how we score the goals. When you see how some Argentine players crossed the line without being sanctioned, for this reason I think it was all premeditated." Asked also by NOS about what he meant exactly, he blurted out himself. "I mean everything I say by that." The journalist asks a new question: "Do you mean that Messi should be world champion?" Van Gaal agreed. "I think so. But I've said enough."
Then, the journalist told him that "this is saying a lot...", to which Van Gaal, annoyed, stated: "I answer, I never lie." And he turned to the journalist: "Why do you insist when I answer what I think?" The conversation with Van Gaal became even more hostile when he was questioned by the current coach, Ronald Koeman: "I'm not here to answer about him. You are false, very false. Goodbye." And he left the journalist planted to leave in a hurry.
