Louis van Gaal greeted his former Barcelona players Xavi & Pique in tunnel before Spain 1 – Holland 5 [Video]
There was plenty of interwoven connections between Spain and Holland last night, notably between Dutch boss Louis van Gaal and the several Spanish players, who he used to manage at Barcelona.
Van Gaal stopped to have a chat with Xavi and Pique (who he didn’t manage but would have known from the youth set-up), as did Patrick Kluivert, van Gaal’s number 2 and former Barcelona striker.
On hindsight, and knowing how the game panned out, the Barcelona pair look far too relaxed, Xavi’s ecstatic embracing of Kluivert contrasting with Ramos’ 100-yard stare in front of him.
Were van Gaal and Kluivert knowingly softening them up?
