Louis Van Gaal blasts journalist who claims he plays defensive tactics

In other news, Briefly News recently reported that Netherlands manager Louis Van Gaal has hit out at a journalist for criticising his tactics for being defensive the way Chelsea and Liverpool plays, Tribuna reports.

The former Barcelona and Manchester United manager is back with the Dutch national team following the exit of Frank de Boer after their poor Euro 2020 outing.

The first time Van Gaal was in charge of Holland was in 2000 and held on for just two years before being fired even though he returned for the second stint in 2012 to 2014.
