Former Netherlands head coach Louis Van Gaal has claimed the World Cup was rigged.
Argentina won the FIFA World Cup in December 2022 after beating France via penalty kicks. In the quarterfinals, Argentina faced off against the Netherlands in a game that was full of chaos and uncertainty. Argentina eventually won the game on penalty kicks.
Louis Van Gaal said yesterday that the World Cup was rigged to favour Messi. “I don’t really want to say much about it. When you see how Argentina gets the goals, how we get the goals, and how some Argentina players overstepped the mark and were not punished, then I think it was all a premeditated game,” he said.
