By Louis van Gaal Positioned as a Central Defender, Tyrell Malacia Disagree and Had Debate - Louis van Gaal conducted a role experiment on Tyrell Malacia in the Dutch national team. The 71-year-old coach played the player from the Manchester United club as a left center back, not a left back.

The Netherlands will play UEFA Nations League A 2022/2023 against Belgium on Monday (26/9/2022) early morning WIB. In the duel at the Johan Cruijff Arena, Der Oranje won 1-0 from Virgil van Dijk's goal.

These results make the Netherlands qualify for the semifinals of the UEFA Nations League. Frenkie de Jong and colleagues won Group 4. The Netherlands have never lost in the six matches played, five wins and one draw.

Back in the Netherlands vs Belgium match, Louis van Gaal played Tyrell Malacia as a left center back in a 3-4-3 formation. Let's see a more complete review of Tyrell Malacia's reaction below

Tyrell Malacia rebuked by his partner

Initially, Louis van Gaal put Tyrell Malacia on the bench. The 22-year-old only played at the start of the second half. Malacia came on to the pitch to replace Nathan Ake.

Malacia plays for the left centre-back role. He played alongside Van Dijk and Jurien Timber. This is an unusual position for Malacia. He admitted that at first it was difficult for him to adapt to the role.

"I went forward too many times, twice or not. It was impossible in the (central-back) position to do it that fast," said Malacia.

Due to advancing too often, Malacia was reprimanded several times by his team-mates. "However, I was then corrected by other players," said the former Feyenoord player.

Don't agree

Louis van Gaal said changing roles for Malacia could have a positive impact. However, the real player is not happy with his new position. Malacia even had time to argue with the former Manchester United manager.

"I don't agree with the decision, yes it's true. After the game we (Malacia and Van Gaal) talked about that moment for a while and it's over," said Malacia.

"I feel comfortable with my role at Manchester United now. The national team coach thinks that I can play at centre-back. However, I feel good on the left," said Malacia.
