    Louis Van Gaal on not playing total football at this World Cup for Holland

    "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."

    "It was disappointing to see them go out last night but it's been a fantastic campaign for him, starting with a result nobody could have foreseen. The 5-1 against Spain was maybe the standout performance of the tournament. Obviously it’s been great for the United fans to watch and for the players to see him do so well. It's excited everyone. He's mixed up his formations and he’s juggled around the players. To get to the semi-finals of the World Cup is a great achievement. He'd have liked to have gone further but it wasn't to be. The group he was in... to get out of that was an achievement in itself, so I'm sure he'll be pleased to go so far."

    Louis Van Gaal says that two Dutch players bottled taking the first penalty

    "It should give you confidence; we took those penalties in an incredible way against Costa Rica. But the issue is you need to score the first one and I asked two players to take the first ball before ending up with Ron Vlaar. I thought he was the best player on the pitch so should have a lot of confidence. It just goes to show it is not easy scoring in a penalty shoot-out. It's the most terrible scenario, to lose on penalties. At the very least we were equal with them, if not the better team. It's a big disappointment.”


    "We played a fantastic tournament. No-one had expected us to make it through to the next phase, so as group winners we moved on. After that, we defeated Mexico - a team who are not easy to beat and are solid in terms of their organisation. Argentina are a top country with top players. We didn't lose against them, but the penalties are down to luck."

    "This match should never be played, I've been saying this for 10 years. We will just have to play a good match, but it's also unfair because we have one less day to recover. Chances are, that you lose twice in a row. And in a tournament in which you've played so marvelously well, you go home a loser. You shouldn't have players play a third-fourth-place match, because there's only one award that counts and that is becoming World Cup champion."

    "I went to the dressing room to congratulate him. He helped me a lot when I arrived in Holland in a completely different country. He spoke Spanish and helped me a lot. So just as I'm grateful to Alejandro, I'm also grateful to Van Gaal and everything he did for me. He is a person that teaches a lot to the players how to grow. He helped me grow. I arrived when I was 20 years old and I will be forever grateful to that coach."

    "In general, I'm not interested in what people say about me or my team unless it's positive. We didn't create very much. In all the other matches, we created more opportunities than today. That says something about the Argentinean team. That says something about the tactical match we saw. It is the most terrible scenario to lose in penalties. It is a big disappointment."

    "If I had the opportunity to substitute Jasper, I would've done it, but I had already used three substitutes, so I couldn't do that. I substituted Janmaat for Indi because Martins Indi already had a yellow card. I didn't want to take a risk with De Jong because he would be injured. I substituted Van Persie because he was exhausted."

    "Van Gaal was the best manager I've had in my career. I was irritated when he left me out but I always recognised he was the best football-wise, for the concepts he has and how he imposes them on a team. He has shown that in this World Cup. But I didn't leave because of him but because of my own decision.”
