Van Gaal: When things go badly at Barcelona, they blame the foreigners

Ronald Koeman is going through a tough time at Barcelona right now, but he has received support from his fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal.

Van Gaal knows what it's like to be criticised at the Camp Nou and claimed that Barcelona tend to make foreigners the scapegoats when things go poorly.

"History is repeating itself," he said during a Netherlands press conference when asked about the criticism of Koeman.

"These are typical things that happen at Barcelona.

"When things go well and you make important contributions, like Frenkie de Jong has done these past couple of years, then there's nothing to worry about.

"But, when things go badly, people at Barcelona always look at the foreigners. In this case, that's the coach.

"I'd advise him to not pay much attention to it all."
