Its official! Frank de Boer has been announced as the new head coach of the Dutch national team.

On Tuesday evening, De Telegraaf came with the news that De Boer was to be Ronald Koeman’s successor on a two-year deal.

The KNVB have now confirmed De Boer’s appointment and that he will be in charge of the national team until after the 2022 World Cup. Although there will be a review after next summer’s European Championships.

This Friday, the KNVB will present De Boer to the press, and the 50-year-old will take charge of Oranje for the first time on the 7th of October in a friendly against Mexico.

De Boer has previously been an assistant to the national team, but then took charge of Ajax for six years, winning four Eredivisie titles. He then had short spells in charge of Internazionale, Crystal Palace, and most recently Atlanta United. All three of these jobs ended with De Boer being sacked.
