blind van gaalNetherlands coach Danny Blind, who was assistant to Louis van Gaal during the 2014 World Cup campaign, believes the Manchester United boss would make a perfect technical director for the Dutch national side.

Blind told AD.”With Van Gaal I could achieve a lot,”

“He is in the top category. But there are also many other options to think of where the shoe could fit.

“I do not know if that will happen. I recently read a comment by Bert van Oostveen (KNVB director) about (technical director). But I have not spoken to him about it personally.

“The key question is: what are the pillars of the work of a technical director? I have been one myself a couple of times in my career and basically it comes down to a buying and selling policy but that is at a club, not at the KNVB.

“It comes to the flow of youth players. You have to offer an exciting job and it must be someone with respect. It’s difficult.”
