  • Koeman Named Netherlands Manager

Former Everton manager Koeman has been out of a job since he was dismissed by the Premier League club back in October.

The 54-year-old replaces Dick Advocaat who resigned after failing to guide the Netherlands to the 2018 World Cup.

For a country with great worldwide pedigree-the Netherlands finished runners-up at the 2010 World Cup and in third place at Brazil 2014-Koeman will be eager to get them back to those great heights.

Koeman played 78 internationals for the Netherlands and was part of the team's only major title, the 1988 European Championship. "That's why I've taken the job".

At the time, the Dutch Football Association opted for the experience of Guus Hiddink, a move that backfired as he failed to galvanize a squad Van Gaal helped to overachieve in Brazil.

The 54-year-old former worldwide defender is the seventh coach in eight years for the Dutch team, who have missed out on the last two major championships.

After finishing seventh in his first season at Everton, Koeman was sacked with the Toffees 18th in the Premier League table despite spending around £150million on new signings in the summer.
