Blind about Van Gaal’s illness: ‘Gained even more respect from my side’

Daley Blind has gained even more respect for Louis van Gaal when he was informed of the national coach’s illness. The national coach of the Dutch national team was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had to undergo treatment.

Blind himself also suffers from health problems. Only a year and a half after his first heart problems in December 2019 did he play another game without thinking about his heart. ‘I have confidence in my body again and know that what I do is possible. Because I take medication before every training and competition, I am still confronted with my heart almost every day,” he says. The Telegraph.

Van Gaal did not want to disrupt the Orange team process

The announcement that Van Gaal was diagnosed with prostate cancer did come to Blind’s mind. “A difficult and intense moment for me. The fact that he didn’t let us know during the training camp and went to the hospital during the night made me even more respectful. That he wanted to stay strong so as not to disrupt our team process.’

Daley’s father – Danny Blind – knew about Van Gaal’s disease as an assistant coach to Van Gaal. He had deliberately not told his son. ‘After that we – the national coach and I – did have contact with each other about our health problems,’ concludes Blind.
