The Netherlands national football team has recently been experiencing managerial changes with Louis van Gaal deciding to step down from coaching the national side on July of 2014 and he was replaced by GuusHiddink.
Unfortunately for the Netherlands national side, their selection of GuusHiddink was a disastrous one as he only spent 1 year and around 4 months in charge of the national team but due to disappointing results, Hiddink was eventually fired.
Netherlands lost to Iceland and Czech Republic and also had to settle with draws against Turkey and Kazakhstan. These are just a few of the more infamous defeats of Netherlands under the guidance of Hiddink and why he was removed from his position.
The national side is currently being guided by Danny Blind but one of the candidates that was emerging to replace Hiddink was Ronald Koeman.
Ronald Koemanis now coaching the Premier League club Everton as it was Danny Blind who was selected as the new coach of Netherland but Koeman is hoping that he is taken into consideration for coaching the national team as this is one of his ambitions as a top manager.
“Coaching Netherlands remains one of my ambitions but I think every coach would like that. If I get the chance to coach Netherlands, I would like to take that chance.
“I was keen to take the job in 2014 after my time with Feyenoord and I felt the time was right. They went for Hiddink instead and will have had their reasons for it. Time has shown that was not the best choice but I do not hold a grudge against anyone over it. I would not turn down the job because of what happened in 2014. This is all in the past now. Becoming Netherlands coach could be a nice end to my career.” Everton’s Ronald Koeman said as he expressed his desire to be in charge of Netherlands.
