Tests revealed that Louis van Gaal, coach of the Dutch national football team, had contracted the Corona virus, before the two friendlies scheduled against Denmark and Germany.
Van Gaal began self-isolation as soon as positive test results appeared.
Danny Blind, Henk Fraser and Franz Hoek will take over Van Gaal’s duties so that the coach can mix with the players again.
The Dutch team will meet its Danish counterpart at the “Johan Cruyff Arena” next Saturday, and then meet the German team in Amsterdam three days later.
The Dutch national team list witnessed a few days ago the call up of PSV Eindhoven defender Jordan Teze, and the player is looking forward to making his first appearance with the national team.
The Dutch national team has already qualified for the World Cup finals scheduled in Qatar, where it won Group G in the European qualifiers, after beating Norway 2-0 last November.
