Erwin Koeman is officially the new head coach of the Oman national team.

The 57-year-old arrived in the Asian country for talks earlier this week and has now signed a two-year deal to succeed fellow Dutchman Pim Verbeek.

Koeman has previously worked as a head coach with RKC, Feyenoord, Utrecht, FC Eindhoven and the Hungarian national team. More recently he has been an assistant coach, mostly to his brother Ronald but also to Phillip Cocu at Fenerbahce.

When Cocu was sacked earlier this season, Koeman took interim charge of the Turkish club but he was not given the job permanently.

Koeman will now oversee Oman as they look to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
