Grim said on his new job, “Working with the best footballers in the Netherlands is fantastic. In addition, there is a nice goal with qualification for the 2018 World Cup. Of course, I worked in the Juniors with absolute pleasure and motivation, and I would have liked to go to the European Championship with that team. But this is an opportunity I grasp with both hands. “
