Louis van Gaal is one of the most historic coaches of our time. He has reaped many victories in competitions such as the Champions League. His most significant achievement was winning the Champions League with Ajax in 1995.
This was a remarkable feat, considering that Ajax had not won the competition in over 20 years. Van Gaal is also responsible for developing some of the world’s best players, such as Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids, and Patrick Kluivert.
But what Van Gaal is doing with the Netherlands team is beyond impressive, as he has created an invincible team.
In his third stage in the ‘Oranje,’ he still has not known defeat; he has led sixteen games, with twelve wins and four draws.
Van Gaal was called back to manage his country’s team after Frank de Boer did not reap good results.
De Boer left his position after a disastrous loss to the Czech Republic in the round of 16 at EURO 2020.
Under the orders of Van Gaal, The Netherlands qualified for the World Cup as the first group.
The players are highly disciplined and fully believe in Van Gaal. Currently, the team keeps track of their record of 37 goals for and only 13 against.
Van Gaal surpasses Dick Advocaat to become the winningest coach in the history of the Netherlands, with 38 games celebrating the result.
Among all the periods that Van Gaal has been in charge of the team, his record is quite similar between 2012 and 2014; he lost only three games out of twenty-nine. And between 2000 and 2001, he lost two of fourteen. In total, in all his matches, he has only lost five of fifty-nine, which is impressive.
