Edgar Davids would love to replace Ronald Koeman as head coach of the Dutch national team.

The former midfielder started working as an assistant coach with Telstar this week, but was asked about the Netherlands job by De Telegraaf.

He responded, “Yes, the Dutch national team is definitely something for me. Certainly. It could be. But now they are big shoes to fill, eh.”

On who should actually replace Ronald Koeman, he added, “Who should succeed him? That is very difficult now. Koeman has proven that he was the right man for the Dutch national team. Yes, I think KNVB is now in a bag.”

Louis van Gaal would be a good choice according to the 74-time Oranje international, “I think so. If he wanted to and everyone agrees, why not? He did well at the World Cup.”
