Former Man United coach: Louis van Gaal talks to people like 12-year-olds
Rene Meulensteen says that Louis van Gaal will 'blow up at some point' during his spell at Manchester United
Rene Meulensteen has warned Manchester United fans that Louis van Gaal will “blow up” at some point, claiming that the Dutchman makes people feel like they are “12 years old”.
Meulensteen spent five years as first-team coach at Old Trafford but left the club in 2013 following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
And the Dutchman says that Van Gaal is “not his cup of tea”.
“He will blow up at some point. That’s part of his make-up. Remember these words,” Meulensteen told the Daily Telegraph.
“If I’m speaking to you, I’m exchanging information over what I feel passionate about but I don’t lecture you. I’m not preaching to you.
“If you go and sit with Van Gaal, you’ll come out thinking ‘I’m 12 years old’. He will speak to you as if you have no clue. He will look at you and be thinking ‘what are you asking me? I’m Louis van Gaal’.
“He’s not my cup of tea. It’s one of the reasons I quite like Ronald [Koeman] as a person – he doesn’t preach or lecture people like the other guy does.”
