The OKBET Official Liverpool star recently refuted claims in the media that he opposed Van Gaal's coaching of the Dutch national team.
Van Dijk, who denied leading the Dutch team against Van Gaal's return, said the media coverage was completely wrong.
Following the sacking of Frank De Boul, the Dutch national team is currently looking for a new manager, with sources suggesting they want to invite former head coach Louis van Gaal to return. Louis van Gaal has previously coached the Dutch national team twice, but the Mirror said Van Dijk was one of several players in the Dutch team who opposed Van Gaal's return.
The report said Van Dijk wanted former Chelsea assistant coach Genk Tenkat to become dutch manager, but the Dutch Football Association planned to invite van Gaal, who is close to 70 years old, to return.
Van Dijk then refuted the claim on social media, tweeting: "The news is completely fake, and it is more important for journalists to tell the truth at this time than to fabricate the facts, you are so ashamed, Mr. Mulock." ”
Louis van Gaal has not coached the team since leaving Manchester United in 2016, and in 2019 he announced that he had officially retired from football and would no longer be involved in any form of football-related work.
During his 25 years in charge, Louis van Gaal has led clubs such as Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, the Dutch national team and Manchester United, and has achieved great success, winning the Champions League, La Liga and Bundesliga.
Van Gaal will reportedly return to the national team once his own series of tax issues have been resolved, however, the Dutch Football Federation Supervisory Board has not yet formally approved the appointment.
Van Dijk made his Dutch national team debut in 2015 and has made 38 appearances for the Oranges so far, scoring four goals.
