Van Gaal not sure on Sneijder's World Cup place

Van Gaal not sure on Sneijder's World Cup place
Louis van Gaal has issued a warning to Wesley Sneijder that his World Cup place is under threat unless he improves his form

Van Gaal has been critical of Sneijder ever since he moved to Galatasaray last year, even telling him that he should leave the club for Chelsea, and stripping the midfielder of the national teams captaincy.

Now the Netherlands national team coach has told that he may not be on the plane to Brazil this summer for the World Cup, unless he begins performing week in week out in Turkey.

Van Gaal told for Dutch media: "What if that one through-ball does not happen. Would we just say: too bad for the Dutch national team? In that case, our chances of being eliminated in the first round are quite big.

"You should not be able to deliver at club level every week. If you can not deliver at your club, then you most definitely can not deliver at the national team.

"He will play in Turkey until the middle of May, so I will wait and see. There is no need to decide before then. "

Sneijder has made ​​35 appearances for Galatasaray this season, scored 13 goals and making eight assists.
