gullit nethGullit joining the national team seemed a certainty last week with the man himself confirming that he was in talks with the KNVB to join Danny Blind’s coaching team.

However, Gullit will now not replace Dick Advocaat after the talks came to no agreement.

Hans van Breukelen said on the failed talks, “It definitely was not a money issue, but Ruud wanted to a few clauses and guarantees that I can not give,”

Netherlands will face Greece and Sweden with Marco van Basten as the only assistant to Danny Blind.
