ABOUT THE BOOK
When unveiled as Bayern Munich manager in 2009, Louis Van Gaal remarked, “I am what I am; self-confident, arrogant, dominant, honest, industrious, innovative.”
Former players have described him as “scary”, as a “volcano”. The former Barcelona president described him as “the devil himself”. At Bayern, they said he “vaangalised” their team.
And yet at the same time, he is “warm-blooded”. He openly admits: “I cry almost every day. There’s always something that touches me.”
Barcelona’s Xavi says of him: “People see him as arrogant and aloof but he’s really not.”
‘Dutch Courage’ separates the man from the myths.
This Dutch master has been the head of some of the greatest dynasties in European football – Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester United – as well as the boss of the Netherlands national team (twice).
This biography, by the bestselling author of Fergie’s Finest, brings the Van Gaal biography up to date.
Christian Nerlinger predicts that Van Gaal’s United reign will be anything but predictable: “one thing is for sure: it will not be boring.”
‘From Ajax to Man United, via Bayern Munich, Andrew J Kirby plots the rise of this indomitable, complex figure with verve and great insight. This book is exhaustively researched, and offers great psychological insights into the man, as well as the world of football. A must-read for fans of United, and those of us interested in this colossus of football.’ – Guy Mankowski, author of ‘How I Left the National Grid’.
Andrew J Kirby is a season-ticket holder at Old Trafford, and writes about United for a number of fanzines and blogs. He is the author of ‘Fergie’s Finest: Sir Alex Ferguson’s Greatest Manchester United x11’, and ‘The Pride of all Europe: Manchester United’s Greatest Seasons in the European Cup’.
