The 70-year-old Dutch coach Van Gaal is currently preparing to lead the Orange Army to attack the World Cup at the end of the year. However, it is a pity that Van Gaal confirmed to the public that he had prostate cancer when he was a guest on a TV show in the Netherlands. And in order to let the Netherlands internationals play at ease, Van Gaal did not choose to tell his players.
“I don’t think you can tell that to your colleagues because it might affect their choices, their decisions, so I don’t think they should know. You’re not going to die from prostate cancer, at least 90 percent of them don’t. Yes. Normally other diseases would kill you. But I have an aggressive body and have had 25 radiation treatments. And you have a lot to do to get through your life.”
“I got a lot of preferential treatment when I was in the hospital. When I made an appointment, I was opened the back door and immediately pushed into another room. My treatment has been great, and of course you will tell your friends and family. And the truth The media didn’t reveal anything, and the environment around me wasn’t reported, which is good.”
After Van Gaal revealed that he had prostate cancer, the official social media of Barcelona and Manchester United also sent their blessings to their former coach. Barca wrote: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to former coach Louis van Gaal, who has prostate cancer. Stay strong Louis and get well soon,” while Manchester United said: “Learn that our former coach Louis van Gaal is battling cancer. . All the members of Manchester United are with you, send you courage and blessings, and wish you a speedy recovery!”
