The successor to Frank de Boer as national coach of the Netherlands has apparently been determined.
Association employees chatted about the personnel on a radio station.
Amsterdam - The Netherlands are still without a national coach.
Frank de Boer had made his position as bond coach available after the early knockout in the second round of the European Championship against the Czech Republic.
The KNVB association then quickly selected a preferred candidate.
Louis van Gaal should bring the Elftal back to old strength.
And the former coach of FC Bayern Munich * will in all likelihood be too.
The association's employees told the radio station
that the contract was ripe for signature
The execution should therefore be imminent.
Louis van Gaal will be the new bond coach, Danny Blind his assistant coach
Van Gaal's assistant is said to be former world-class defender Danny Blind.
The 59-year-old was an assistant coach for the Dutch national team from 2012 to 2015, after which he worked as head coach for two years.
Henk Fraser, whom van Gaal knows from his time as an active professional, will also assist.
Frans Hoek, who had already worked with van Gaal at FC Bayern, is under discussion as goalkeeping coach.
This is the third time that Louis van Gaal has signed on as coach of the Dutch national team
For van Gaal it would be the third engagement as national coach of the Netherlands *.
The 69-year-old was in office between 2000 and 2002 and from 2012 to 2014.
In 2014 he led Oranje to third place at the World Cup in Brazil.
From 2009 to 2011 van Gaal was the coach of FC Bayern *.
In his first season he won the double of the championship and the DFB Cup with the record champions.
He also led FCB to the final of the Champions League, which was lost 2-0 to Inter Milan.
