The big question is whether Louis van Gaal will actually be the new national coach. According to Driessen, his arrival is not as easy as everyone assumes. “He has submitted a certain package of requirements to the KNVB and finding the right people for this takes more time than expected.” According to Driessen and Verweij, Danny Blind would do well to become an assistant when Louis van Gaal is actually appointed. However, the men are of the opinion that Blind should resign from his position at Ajax in order to avoid a conflict of interest.
The transfer carousel is also extensively discussed. After the transfer of Kamaldeen Sulemana has failed, Ajax can suddenly turn its attention to Steven Bergwijn, who is not always sure of a base place at Tottenham.
Of course Feyenoord is also discussed. The Rotterdammer are busy finalizing the arrival of Alireza Jahanbakhsh. According to Driessen, this is an ideal successor for Steven Berghuis, who left for Ajax. The men also discuss Tadic’s contract extension at Ajax and the possible departure of Dumfries and Malen from PSV.
