Koeman named Netherlands manager

Ronald Koeman has been out of work since being sacked by Everton in October and has signed a four-and-half-year contract up to and including the 2022 World Cup

Ronald Koeman has been appointed as coach of the Netherlands national team up to and including the 2022 World Cup, the Dutch football association (KNVB) announced on Tuesday.

The 54-year-old former international defender is the seventh coach in eight years for the Dutch team, who were runners-up at the 2010 World Cup and finished third in Brazil four years later but failed to qualify for the 2018 finals in Russia.
