Luis van Gaal is taking over the Netherlands from the golf cart after his injury


Louis van Gaal is not exactly the most iconic coach and the Netherlands boss is now coaching his team with a golf buggy.

Van Gaal has had tremendous success in his career but he is known for his sometimes bizarre behavior and cartoon-like reactions.

The Dutchman has taken over the responsibility of the Netherlands’ national team and hopes to help them qualify for the World Cup, but will have to win the game against Norway on Tuesday to secure a place in Qatar.

Their preparation has not been helped by the fact that the 70-year-old injured himself while riding his bike and had to be placed in a wheelchair.

Obviously it is not advisable to run a training period on the football pitch so the two-time Champions League winning manager now has to take up golf buggy training.

Along with a change of his coaching duties, Van Gaal was unable to come into the room for his pre-match press conference and had to do so through zoom.

While this has hardly been heard in the last two years, it has caused Virgil van Dijk to be in the room in person and his manager a weird scene on the big screen.

Liverpool center-back can be seen cracking down on his boss after being questioned about his pain.

He hopes those tactics will work when they come up against Erling Holland and Norway on Tuesday, as the loss puts them at the World Cup next winter.

Victories for Norway and Turkey mean they have failed to reach the play-offs.
