Since Danny Blind was sacked as Netherlands head coach, Louis van Gaal’s name has been mentioned as a possible successor. The 65-year-old has also been linked with a higher role at the KNVB as a CEO.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, van Gaal, “That (director of football model) is part of the structure of the KNVB, but they need to find a new national team coach first.

“A return as national team coach? I will answer that question if the KNVB ask it…”

Van Gaal also stated that the Netherlands players were to blame for recent results, not Danny Blind, “Blind should take some of the blame, but the players were at fault the most.

“The players never get mentioned anywhere, though…”

Van Gaal has already coached the Dutch national team twice, and led them to the World Cup semi-finals in 2014.
