- August 13, 2014
The powers of Louis van Gaal are being gushed over more and more with every passing day and this Guardian video gives reason to admire the ability of the Dutchman.
Van Gaal’s first spell at Barcelona wasn’t perfect, he clashed with a number of players, especially star man Rivaldo, but judging by how many coaches emerged from the club’s players and staff in 1999-00 season, he made quite an impression on a few players.
As well as working closely with Jose Mourinho, giving him more freedom than predecessor Bobby Robson, van Gaal influenced the likes of, Barca bosses from past and present, Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique.
You can hear about what may have been football’s greatest coaching seminar in the video above.
