Frank de Boer named as Koeman's Netherlands successor
Frank de Boer has been appointed as the new Netherlands head coach, the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) confirmed on Wednesday.
De Boer, who made 112 Netherlands appearances and played at two World Cups for his country, has signed a two-year deal that takes him through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The 50-year-old enjoyed a promising start to his coaching career, leading Ajax to four straight Eredivisie titles between 2011 and 2014.
However, his appointment may come as somewhat of a surprise given a poor track record since departing the Amsterdam club.
De Boer was sacked after Palace lost their first four Premier League games of the season, failing to score a single goal in the process.
De Boer did win the U.S. Open Cup during an 18-month stint in Atlantabut he departed the team two months ago following an indifferent start to the season.
Koeman was originally scheduled to remain in the post through Euro 2020 but the tournament was moved to next summer due to the coronavirus pandemic and he opted not to pass up the chance to take over at Barca.
