“You don’t die from prostate cancer, at least not in ninety percent of the cases- Louis van Gaal opened up about his health condition

Former Manchester United boss, Louis van Gaal, has publicly announced that he is suffering from prostate cancer.

The Dutchman publicly opened up on the ailment on RTL’s show ‘Humberto’ on Sunday, which was the first time he would publicly talk about it.

This year Van Gaal who will be leading the Netherlands national team to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar said he had kept it secret and had been receiving treatment whilst continuing his job as the Dutch team’s senior coach.

He said that he had kept this from players in his squad.

Van Gaal said, “I think you don’t tell people you work with like that because it might influence their choices, their decisiveness, so I thought they shouldn’t know.”

“You don’t die from prostate cancer, at least not in ninety percent of the cases.

“It is usually other underlying diseases that kill you. But I had a pretty aggressive form and got irradiated 25 times. Then you have a lot of management to do in order to go through life.

“I did have preferential treatment in the hospital. I was allowed in through the back door when I went to an appointment and was immediately pushed into another room. I have been treated wonderfully.

“You will of course tell your friends and relatives about it. The fact that nothing has come out yet also says something about my environment. That’s great,” he added.
