Current Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal, is somewhat of a disciplinarian, a wonderful characteristic to have in your coach. The Dutchman has also previously worked at Barcelona, when Gerard Pique was still in the youth ranks at the club. At the time, Pique’s grand-father was a director at the club. So Van Gaal and Pique’s grandfather met fairly regularly.
A journalist at a press conference asked Pique about Van Gaal and his ‘disciplinarian’ character , the Spaniard told the reporters the tale of his first encounter with Van Gaal at his grand-father’s home. It gives you a fairly good idea of what type of an individual Van Gaal is.
