Ronald Koeman Returns to Football After Being Appointed New Netherlands Boss

Having finished third in the 2014 World Cup, the Netherlands subsequently failed to qualify for the following two tournaments - namely Euro 2016 and the upcoming 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Netherlands have appointed former Everton and Southampton manager Ronald Koeman as their new head coach.

Having retired from playing in 1997, that was Koeman's first coaching job, assisting head coach Guus Hiddink as the Oranje finished fourth at the World Cup the following year.

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

He said: "I am proud to finally announce that I am the new manager of the Dutch national team. I am looking forward to the forthcoming years as national team coach".

As it turns out, though, the results are a bit of a mixed bag. As written, the worldwide crew serve as Clichéd Ensemble 101. The Cloverfield Paradox shows how that plan went astray .

Koeman has been out of work since being dismissed by Everton last October after a poor run of form in the Premier League.

In 2012 Koeman was already a candidate to become the Dutch national team coach, but at that time the KNVB chose for the return of Van Gaal.

Under Hiddink and his successor Blind the Netherlands failed to qualify for Euro 2016 and under Blind and, after the latter's dismissal, under Advocaat the Dutch also didn't qualify for the 2018 World Cup. His long-term contract will take in the new UEFA Nations League, Euro 2020 and the 2022 World Cup campaign.

Koeman's first game in charge will be a friendly against England in Amsterdam in March.
