Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal has made the shocking revelation that he is suffering from a form of prostate cancer. 

 

The 70-year-old appeared in a show called ‘Humberto’ on Dutch television on Sunday, which is when he broke the news.

Van Gaal also said that since becoming the manager of the Netherlands national team, he has been visiting the hospital without his players knowing anything about it.

 

The Dutchman has been managing for more than thirty years and has taken charge of many of Europe’s giants over the years, including Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and most notably Ajax - with who he won the Champions League in 1995.
