Ex-Everton boss Koeman appointed Holland coach

Ex-Everton boss Koeman appointed Holland coach”

Ronald Koeman has been appointed as the new head coach of the Netherlands, replacing Dick Advocaat who stepped down in November having failed to secure World Cup qualification.

Koeman, sacked by Everton in October, replaces Dick Advocaat, who stepped down past year.

During his playing career, Koeman made 78 appearances for the Dutch national side.

The 54-year-old has been given a contract with the Orange until 2022, but he will have his work cut out for him in restoring the national side's fortunes.

The Netherlands finished in third place behind France and Sweden in UEFA Group A in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

He succeeds Dick Advocaat, who stepped down after the team's failure to reach this summer's finals in Russian Federation.

The Netherlands also missed out on UEFA EURO 2016 prior to Russian Federation 2018, so Koeman's task will also be to get the Dutch back to the continental finals, which will be held in 12 cities in 12 different host countries. "I am looking forward to the forthcoming years as national team coach".

The former Everton manager's first opponents will be England in a friendly at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam on 23rd March. The best way is so players can handle different systems.

Koeman has been out of work since being sacked by Everton in October a year ago after a surprisingly poor start to the Premier League season and will take his first role global role since working as an assistant coach with the Dutch team in the late 1990s.
