I’m Used To Death, I See It As A Part Of Life – Louis van Gaal



Ex Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal has come out to share an update on his health two years after he revealed that he suffers from aggressive prostate cancer.

He recently had his say while filming for a documentary titled ‘Always Positive’ alongside the director of the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre, Maria Blasco

According to him, his father died when he was 11 years old, his first wife died when she was 39, and all his brothers died way too early, so he is already used to death.

LVG added that he sees death as a part of life right now, and he has learnt to just get on with it.

His words, “Not much, really. Look, I come from a family in which we are nine brothers. I am the smallest. My father died when I was 11 years old. He died at 53.

My first wife died when she was 39. And all my brothers died too soon. I’m used to death. That’s why I know that death is a part of life, and you can deal with it.

When I first heard I had cancer I said, “Okay, it’s not good news, but I better try to do something about it.” Each human can react in a different way. That’s why I say: “Be yourself.”’

I have always looked very young, that is the reason for my good appearance. My mother was dying and until the last moment she had her face like a flower. No one could see that she was sick. And I have the same problem. Or the same luck.

I have been living with the disease for just over three years, with radiation, hormone injections, operations, catheters and urine bags. It’s unbelievable, but I can handle it. I have managed it, and I have been able to do it even working during the last World Cup.

I even think that during the World Cup I managed it even better, because I had a goal. And with the cancer process it happens just like with the process of being a coach, you look for a goal. For me it was positive to deal with both things.”
