Brilliant Dutch Courage by Louis van Gaal at the World Cup



To win, a leader needs to innovate and do things differently. Step forward Louis van Gaal and his gutsy decision to replace the Netherlands goalkeeper with a minute to go, so that Tim Krul’s height, reach and freshness could help win the penalty shoot-out for the Dutch. ‘Never been done before’ they cried! Well it made the difference in a tight encounter, and also showed the importance of getting the best from the whole team. The unity of the Dutch, and playing for one another, was evident. A culture also down to Louis van Gaal. The Dutch march on to a semi-final with Argentina, and Manchester United have the leader who has the inspiration to take them to the top again!
