Louis Van Gaal: The Biography by Maarten Meijer, out in July.


"The next coach of the team, I heard him say he wants the Dutch way of playing football. I have always played the Dutch way and I also gave it something else. Perhaps this will open everyone's eyes in the Netherlands and make people realise there's not just one system. We were able to show a kind of football that is rather novel, in the Netherlands at least, with players who cooperate so well. A coach has to work based on the quality of his squad and it worked out apart from the fact that we are not world champions but really we were very, very close."
