According to De Telegraaf, Frank de Boer is the man the KNVB wants to take on the Netherlands head coach role, but he must agree to keep the current coaching staff.

The KNVB met with De Boer this week and the former defender is now the man set to replace Ronald Koeman.

However, De Boer must accept the KNVB’s demand that the backroom staff remains the same. Dwight Lodeweges, Patrick Lodewijks and Maarten Stekelenburg would remain assistants with Ruud van Nistelrooy also joining for Euro 2020.

If De Boer accepts then he should be confirmed as the new Oranje boss in the near future. A second meeting with the KNVB is planned for next week.

De Boer needs to be in charge for the friendly against Mexico on the 7th of October.
