Van Gaal named Netherlands head coach for third time following De Boer departure

 

The former Manchester United and Bayern Munich manager has been tasked with helping the Oranjes reach the 2022 World Cup
Louis van Gaal has been named Netherlands head coach for the third time following Frank de Boer’s departure in June.

De Boer stepped down from the post following the Netherlands’ disappointing round of 16 exit at the hands of the Czech Republic at the European Championships, and the Dutch Football Association (KNVB) have now turned to a familiar face to steady the ship.

Van Gaal has been appointed on an initial one-year deal to oversee the remainder of the Oranjes’ World Cup qualifying campaign, and will also be in the dugout if they make it to the 2022 tournament in Qatar, with Danny Blind signing on as his assistant after stepping down from the Ajax board of directors.
