As top stars like Depay and Janssen flop, why is Dutch football in crisis?

Is this Memphis Depay's last chance to make an impact at a big club?

Then, a day later, insisted he was not retiring but only taking a sabbatical to be with his family and that, in fact, he had rejected an offer from Valencia and would consider his future in the summer.

One thing seems certain: Van Gaal's failure to conquer English football with United will make it difficult, if not downright impossible, for him to give up football for good.
