Netherlands center back, Virgil Van Dijk has slammed The Mirror journalist, Mr Mullock for a false story that the center back was leading a revolt against the reappointment of Van Gaal as manager.
Frank De Boer resigned from his role as head coach of the national side after a below par outing for the Orange side.
A story on The Mirror website by Mr Mullock claimed that Van Dijk and PSG midfielder Wijnaldum were the rebels that do not want the reappointment of Van Gaal but would prefer the appointment of Henk ten Cate.
The Liverpool defender took to Twitter to vent his annoyance at the story and called out Mr Mullock.
“This story is completely false. It’s never been more important for journalists to tell the truth and not just make stuff up. Shame on you Mr”, Van Dijk tweeted.
