International: Holland boss Van Gaal tells Norwich keeper Krul to stay away

Holland boss, Louis van Gaal, strongly believes Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul is out of the World Cup.

Krul was left out of the Dutch side for their Nations League games against Poland and Belgium but Van Gaal wanted to use the Norwich ‘keeper, a specialist at saving penalties, as part of a session dedicated to spot-kicks.

But Krul, 34 refused to participate, prompting Van Gaal to inform him he would not be on the plane to Qatar.

“Krul called me to tell me that he will pass,” Van Gaal said. “I thought it was a shame, because I know that he stops the most penalties in terms of statistics.

“There is no future for him at the Orange, because he did not want to come. That is the consequence of his decision.

“I’ve always thought that you can train a penalty kick. Not the moment and the pressure, but you can automate your process and that gives confidence.

“I have convinced the boys that they can do something with it, that players at the club will train for penalties.

“You cannot change the training policy at their club, but you can request them to practice their own penalty kicks.”
