Louis van Gaal hugs a young journalist who mentioned he is a fan of the legendary manager

Louis van Gaal shared a heartfelt moment with a young journalist after a press conference at the World Cup.

Ahead of his side’s second Group A game against Senegal on Friday, the former Manchester United manager was told by a young reporter that he didn’t have a question, just wanted to say he was a big fan.

Van Gaal thanked the media member and told him. “I don’t hear that often, it’s very sweet. I want to hug you. Later you and I will hug.’

True to his word, the 71-year-old looked up the young reporter after the press conference and hugged him in front of his colleagues.

Van Gaal was also asked by the attending press if his side plan to repeat Germany’s apparent protest ahead of the game against Japan as they too have been prevented from wearing the OneLove armband.

The Dutch coach replied that the protest would not be repeated.

‘No. We put an end to the political problems after we had already invited the migrant workers,” referring to a kickabout the team shared with the workers after arriving at the tournament.

The Champions League winners’ team got off to an excellent start in their first World Cup game since third place in 2014.

Goals from Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaassen gave the Oranje a 2-0 win over Senegal to top their group.

After the clash with Ecuador, Van Gaal’s side will play their final group game against hosts Qatar on Tuesday at 3pm.
