At the age of 20, he joined the second team of Ajax, but was never chosen to play in the first team, which at the time boasted players such as Johan Cruyff and Johan Neeskens in the midfield positions.
He was loaned to Belgian First Division side Royal Antwerp playing under Guy Thys with whom he was runner-up in the Belgian top division in 1974 and 1975. During his time with Antwerp, Van Gaal suffered a broken nose in a friendly against K.V. Kortrijk.

Louis van gaal interview
Lionel Messi launched an X-rated rant during a live TV interview after Argentina’s win against the Netherlands on Friday night.
Argentina are through to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Qatar after winning a shootout. The ill-tempered knockout game, which saw 15 yellow cards brandished by Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz, went to penalties after it finished 2-2 in normal time.
Messi was also spotted arguing with Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal and his assistant Edgar Davids at full-time. It’s unclear, however, who the Argentina captain was talking to when he interrupted an interview to say: “What you looking at, idiot? Go on, f*** off over there.”
Messi played a crucial role in Argentina’s win. He set up Nahuel Molina’s opener in the first half before converting a penalty after the interval. Argentina were heading to a comfortable win before Wout Weghorst came off the bench to score a late brace.
Neither team could make the breakthrough in extra-time and penalties were needed to settle the tie. Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was the hero at the Education City Stadium, as he denied Virgil van Dijk and Steven Berghuis from 12 yards.
There were several fiery incidents during the game. In the 88th minute, Van Dijk brutally pushed Leandro Paredes to the ground after the Juventus midfielder produced a wild challenge on Nathan Ake and booted a ball at the Netherlands dugout.
Juventus’ ex-Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni on Thursday revealed how coach Louis van Gaal once proved he had ‘the balls’ to drop any of Bayern’s stars – by dropping his trousers.
Having joined Bayern from Fiorentina in 2007, Toni, 33, was Bayern’s top scorer in his first season when he scored 24 goals in 31 league games as Bayern won the Bundesliga title.
But he played just four league games under van Gaal before he switched to AS Roma in the January winter break at the start of 2010 and was not one of van Gaal’s first-choice players.
“Van Gaal simply didn’t want to work with me, he treats players like interchangeable objects,” said Toni.
But The Italian told German magazine Sport Bild about the time van Gaal proved to Bayern’s superstars, including Dutchman Arjen Robben, Germany’s Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger how he was man enough to drop any of his players.
“The coach wanted to make clear to us that he can drop any player, it was all the same to him because, as he said, he had the balls,” said Toni.
“He demonstrated this literally (by dropping his trousers). I have never experienced anything like it, it was totally crazy. Luckily I didn’t see a lot, because I wasn’t in the front row.”
Also Toni is not the first ex-Bayern player to criticise van Gaal as former captain Lucio has said the coach was part of the reason he left Munich in July 2009.
“Van Gaal hurt me more than anyone else in football,” said Brazil defender Lucio who won the Champions League title with Inter Milan last season.
