Shock Confession of Louis Van Gaal: The Dutch football national coach and former coach of FC Bayern Munich has already suffered from prostate cancer before some time ago.
This revealed the 70-year-old on Sunday in Dutch television.
However, the disease will not stop him from serving his team at the World Cup in Qatar (21 November to 18 December).
The players “do not know,” the 70-year-old said to the television station “RTL” and added that he has already undergone 25 irradiations, especially in the evening during the training camp of the Dutch national team.
Last Tuesday, Van Gaal had been in the international match of the Elftal against Germany in Amsterdam (1: 1) despite a corona infection on the sideline.
Van Gaal had led the Netherlands to the World Cup finals.
In the preliminary round A, the three-time vice-world champion meets Katar and Senegal and Ecuador.
