Last month it was announced that Dick Advocaat would take over from Danny Blind as Netherlands head coach, with Ruud Gullit joining as his assistant.

Advocaat told his press conference, ”Ruud Gullit and I have a great feeling as regards to the quality of players we have in the squad.

”We will all work together as members of the technical staff and I am delighted that Ruud has chosen to come and work with the Dutch national team. I always held out hope that we could work together.

”Ruud is an enormous personality with great charisma.”
