Fans have criticised Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal for his decision to bench Manchester United left-back Tyrell Malacia against Poland today (September 22).

Van Gaal opted to field a back three of Nathan Ake, Virgil van Djik and Jurrien Timber for their UEFA Nations League encounter. Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries start as the wing-backs for the game with Malacia sitting on the bench.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form for Manchester United this season since joining from Feyenoord for £12.9 million, playing eight games.

Fans were left frustrated with the Dutch coach’s decision to start Blind ahead of Malacia.

Manchester United fans took to Twitter to state that the 23-year-old deserved to get a few minutes.

A few Netherlands fans are also concerned that their side are at a disadvantage due to the former United manager’s decision to bench the starlet.

Check out the best reactions across Twitter to Van Gaal’s decision to bench Malacia:

@TheEuropeanLad No Malacia, this is why Van Gaal has some weird agenda against us. Not our fault we sacked him when all he did for our club was being in 0-0 draws

@TheEuropeanLad Dictator has started his tactics atleast malacia won’t be injured

@TheEuropeanLad Im so done with this man,what has Malacia got to do to get some minutes!!!!

Malacia has made five appearances for Oranje in his young career. Blind, a former United full-back, meanwhile, has made 92 appearances in his prolonged career for the Dutch national team.


Louis van Gaal and Frenkie de Jong hail Robert Lewandowski ahead of Netherlands clash against Poland

Frenkie de Jong, Lewandowski’s Barcelona teammate, doubled down on his coach’s claims as he showered his praise on the Polish striker.

“Robert Lewandowski is a really nice person. He is one of the best players in the world and he is an all-round striker. He is strong, he can hold the ball, his technical ability is really good, he makes a lot of runs and he scores a lot of goals.”

Despite the mutual respect, the Netherlands team will have to concentrate on the task of handling the threat Lewandowski possesses.

Lewandowski has scored 11 goals and provided two assists in eight matches so far in all competitions.
