Ronald Koeman confirmed as Netherlands boss

FORMER Everton boss Ronald Koeman has been appointed new Holland manager.

Ronald Koeman took charge of the struggling Netherlands team on Tuesday.

The appointment of the ex-Netherlands global was announced by the country's football association (KNVB) on Tuesday.

The 54-year-old Koeman signed a contract until the 2022 World Cup and replaces Dick Advocaat, who was appointed as a stop-gap measure in June after Danny Blind was sacked.

But the NPR said the United States should start mounting these tactical nuclear weapons on strategic and attack submarines. Critics, on the other hand, said Kono's words highlighted Japan's dependence on the USA nuclear umbrella.

His contract will see him in charge up to and including the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Nico-Jan Hoogma, general manager of Heracles Almelo and a former defender, has been brought in as Koeman's assistant.

"I'm really positive about the future of the national team - if not, I wouldn't take the job for the next two [years] and the next two after that. We don't have the best players, but that does not mean you can not have the best team".

Advocaat stepped down from the role after failing to guide Holland to Russian Federation, in what was his third spell in charge of the national team.

During that time the national team slumped from one disappointment to another. He represented his country in the 1990 and 1994 World Cups, and helped his team to victory for the first time in the 1988 UEFA European championships.

The younger brother of former global team-mate Erwin Koeman, and the son of ex-Dutch worldwide Martin Koeman, he made his debut at 17 playing for FC Groningen in 1980.

After finishing seventh in his first season at Everton, Koeman was sacked with the Toffees 18th in the Premier League table despite spending around £150million on new signings in the summer.
