Ronald Koeman appointed as manager of the ailing Champions

Ronald Koeman has been appointed as manager of the Netherlands.

Koeman, who has been out of work since being sacked by Everton in October, will take charge for the first time against England on 23 March.

He has signed a four-and-half-year contract up to and including the 2022 World Cup.

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

“I’m really positive about the future of the team. We have enough talent but we have to change some things, which I will talk about at a later stage,” Koeman said at a news conference.

A legend with the Netherlands national team, Koeman was capped 78 times as a player and won the European Championship in 1988.
