Louis Van Gaal Re-Appointed As Netherlands Coach Until End Of 2022
The Netherlands has reappointed Louis van Gaal as their manager on a contract until the end of 2022.
Louis Van Gaal is taking up the role of Netherlands coach for the third time. He previously led his country from 2000 to 2001 and from 2012 to 2014.
He told: “Dutch football has always been close to my heart and national coaching is in my view a key position for the further advancement of our football.
“Moreover, I consider it an honour to coach the Dutch national team.
“There is little time for the next qualifying matches, which are immediately crucial for participation in the World Cup.”
“The focus is therefore immediately 100 per cent on the players and the approach. After all, I was appointed for that.”
“It is good to be back. By now I have already spoken to a number of players and the technical staff has been put together,” he added.
“I am very much looking forward to getting the job done together.”
Van Gaal replaces Frank de Boer, who left his role following the Netherlands’ shock failure to the Czech Republic in the last 16 of Euro 2020 this summer.
The re-appointed coach rose to fame as a manager by leading Ajax to three Dutch titles, the Champions League and the UEFA Cup during the 1990s.
