Koeman Still Hoping On Netherlands Job

share on:

Dutchman, Ronald Koeman, who is currently in charge of Everton is still hoping to manage the Oranje of Netherlands sometime in his career.

The former Southampton manager was earmarked to replace LVG at the helm of the squad, only for Guus Hiddink to be appointed by the Dutch Football Association. Hiddink was later replaced by Danny Blind.

Koeman left Southampton to take charge of Everton ahead of the 2016-17 campaign, signing a three-year deal at Goodison Park, but he still has designs on the top job in his homeland.

“Coaching Netherlands remains one of my ambitions,” Koeman told Fox Sports.

“But I think every coach would like that. If I get the chance to coach Netherlands, I would like to take that chance.

“I was keen to take the job in 2014 after my time with Feyenoord and I felt the time was right. They went for Hiddink instead and will have had their reasons for it. Time has shown that was not the best choice.

“But I do not hold a grudge against anyone over it. I would not turn down the job because of what happened in 2014. This is all in the past now.

“Becoming Netherlands coach could be a nice end to my career.”
