The Dutch football federation is currently working on a plan to develop their football after their recent poor results.
Indeed, the Dutch football team has not succeeded in qualifying for the Euros, and it seems that the trend will continue for the next few years with a lack of world-class footballers coming up.
It is difficult to think that a team that finished third at the last World Cup has experienced such a decline, but there are various reasons for that. First of all, there might be a sense complacency around the team thinking that they are already at the top.
Secondly, it appears also that they have also been a decline in the quality of their players. Two of their best players at the last World Cup Robin Van Persie and Wesley Sneijder are playing in the Turkish league while Arjen Robben seems to be a player that is past his best.
The Dutch federation admitted that there is a problem with the development of new players and that there need to be corrective measures taken. Indeed, the Netherlands were once recognized for their model of football development, but it seems that their approach is no longer working.
