Van Dijk denies leading a campaign against Van Gaal's return to coach the Netherlands

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk denied reports that he was leading a campaign against Louis van Gaal's return to coach the Dutch mills.

There were reports that Louis van Gaal was approaching the technical leadership to coach the Netherlands, succeeding Frank de Boer, after bidding farewell to the Mills for the Round of 16 in the last European Nations Cup "Euro 2020", after losing to the Czech Republic.

And the British newspaper "Mirror" circulated a report about Virgil van Dijk's leadership of a campaign against the return of Louis van Gaal to coach the Netherlands again.

Virgil van Dijk commented on his official account on the social networking site "Twitter", saying, "This story is completely wrong, it was not the most important for journalists to tell the truth and not just make things up, shame on you."

Dutchman Louis van Gaal approached the leadership of the Netherlands team to succeed Frank de Boer, who failed to lift the European Nations Cup "Euro 2020".

Van Gaal had previously coached the Netherlands national team in two previous terms, the first between 2000 and 2002 and the second between 2012 and 2014, when he led the team to the third place in the World Cup in Brazil.

And the newspaper "Algemeen Dagblad" confirmed that Van Gaal is the closest to succeeding Frank de Boer, who left his position after bidding farewell to Euro 2020 from the round of 16 against the Czech Republic, which exposed him to harsh criticism.

Van Gaal won the Champions League and European Cup with Ajax Amsterdam, and also won local titles with Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Alkmaar.
