The former midfielder has been out of coaching since leaving Russian side Terek Grozny in 2011. However, he was recently in talks with KNVB over taking an assistant role, but those talks broke down.

Speaking to beIN Sport, Gullit confirmed his interest in replacing Danny Blind. “Anyone who is offered that job would want it. I’ve told them I’m willing.

“It’s an honour to be coach of the national team. I already was willing to help the national team. What they’re going to do at the moment, nobody knows. There’s a lot of names there who are circling around.

“My name has been there as well. Let’s see what happens. First of all, on top of the federation, you know, the board and everything, has to be some clarity. At the moment, it’s a disaster what happens there. A lot of people retreated from the job. Nobody knows who’s responsible so that would also be a beginning.”
