Barcelona’s Koeman Has Been Replaced With Frank De Boer

Koeman Replaced With Frank De Boer

Former Atlanta United boss Frank de Boer has been named as Netherlands manager following Ronald Koeman’s departure to Barcelona.

De Boer has been placed in charge for the 2020-21 Nations League as well as the rearranged Euro 2020 tournament, which will now take place in 2021 following the coronavirus outbreak.

The ex-Barcelona defende saw his reputation take a slight hit due to spells at Inter Milan and Crystal Palace, which led to early-season dismissals.

He then took over as manager of Atlanta in 2018 and led them to the Eastern Conference final, where his side were beaten 2-1 by Toronto FC. He left the club following their early elimination from the MLS Is Back Tournament.

De Boer started his playing career at Ajax, where he spent 10-and-a-half seasons before he joined Barcelona in 1999 and won La Liga.

He is the third most-capped Dutch player with 112 appearances.
