Sources have apparently revealed to NOS that there will be clarity by the end of this week with Dick Advocaat the slight favourite ahead of Henk Ten Cate.

KNVB director Hans van Breukelen held talks with both Advocaat and Ten Cate last week and is currently deciding on who should get the role. If he picks Advocaat then van Breukelen will need to give his reasons to Kevin Strootman, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder, who according to NOS have voiced their disapproval at the current Fenerbahce boss returning to the national team.

Advocaat was named as an assistant to Danny Blind with the national team last year but after only three months left to take a lucrative contract in Turkey. That has not been forgotten in certain areas of the Oranje camp.
