🇳🇱 Van Gaal: Barcelona always blame foreigners

Former FC Barcelona manager Louis Van Gaal has claimed the Catalan giants have a habit of blaming foreign players.

Van Gaal, who has recently begun his tenure as the Netherlands' manager after Frank De Boer was sacked after the 2020 Euros.

Vaan Gaal was asked to share his views after his national team players were criticised for Barca's poor start to the current season, especially midfielder Frankie De Jong.

"Frenkie de Jong, criticised?" Van Gaal said as quoted by per Goal.

"It's typical [at] Barcelona. When you have the great contributions he's had in the past two years, there's not too much to worry about.

"[But] when things go bad, people in Barcelona always look for the foreigners [to blame].

"When I look at the data from Memphis, I've never had a striker like this.

"Someone who runs so much, goes deep so many times and gets into the ball so much. That's commendable," the former Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are preparing for the visit of lold La Liga foes Valencia this weekend.
