World Cup qualification | Unlogic : Van Gaal criticizes viewer ban
The coach requires that Orange on Tuesday must play the last qualifier against Norway in Rotterdam without viewers. The government decision was illogical, said Van Goal.
Since Saturday to at least 4 December, there are no viewers for van Gaals competitions in the Netherlands. All 44,000 tickets had been sold for the game at Station de Kuip. How painful it is, Netherlands against Norway is played without viewers, said the Managing Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
Van Goal understand that Corona is more important than football, but I do not understand these measures if there is a few infected. I live in Portugal and there is in contrast to the Netherlands correctly. There are 98 percent vaccinated, and the hospital beds are not vaccinated there fully occupied. It s about leadership qualities. Mr. Butte is here the ladder, because you can expect something of it, said Van Goal.
It looks like political poverty
The 70-year-old regretted the lack of support in the stadium, with the audience in the back one could make always a bit more. Let s say we win against Norway. Then we are qualified for the World Cup. This beautiful moment is then falling in the stadium, even for the players. That s sad, I think it s a pity, he said.

Previously, the Dutch Football Association KNOB had critically expressed the government s decisions. It s more than frustrating to see that the government is apparently not looking for the infection sources. These are not in the stadiums. This has been proved several times. It looks like political poverty. You do not know what you know in The Hague do, the association had written in a statement.
