Former Everton manager Ronald Koeman has been appointed as the new Netherlands coach.
Koeman officially took over the hot seat on Tuesday evening and is tasked with reinventing the lost glory of the Orange.
Speculation had been rife through Monday and Tuesday that the ex- Everton manager would take over the reins with the Dutch news reporting that the Royal Dutch Football Federation (KNVB) had all but made up their mind on handing him the delicate task.
Koeman, 54, who was sacked by Everton in October after a string of defeats, saw The Toffees fall into the relegation zone.
He takes over from Dick Advocaat; the latest in a raft of unsuccessful appointments since 2014.
An attack-minded central defender, Koeman picked up 78 caps as a player between 1982-94, scoring 14 goals.
