Since Danny Blind was sacked as the Oranje head coach last month, Louis van Gaal’s name has been top of the list of candidates to replace him. However, the former Manchester United and Netherlands boss is said to be eyed for a CEO position instead with the KNVB, which is restructuring its organisation.

Speaking to De Stentor, Hans van Breukelen, current technical director with the KNVB, is clear that van Gaal needs to be given any position he wants.

He said,  “Louis should have a function within the KNVB.

“He may return as a coach or consultant. Even if it is at the expense of my own job then i say: “Go ahead, Louis.” Because we need him.”
