These reports telegraph Tuesday evening.
Koeman has already hinted in the new season of the Videoland series “Força Koeman” that he would like to return as a national coach. The coach was also in charge of Orange between 2018 and 2020.
Then Virgil van Dijk showed Orange captaincy without batting an eyelid to applaud Koeman’s return.
De Telegraaf continues: “Sources around Orange and Zest know that a large part of the group of players have a definite desire to bring Koeman back if Van Gaal stops.”
The current national team coach, who announced on Sunday evening to Umberto Tan that he suffers from an aggressive type of prostate cancer, informed the selection and management of the National Football Association last December of his decision to stop after the World Cup.
“Leaders, such as Virgil van Dijk, Memphis, Frenkie de Jong and Georginio Wijnaldum have never hidden that they have great faith in Koeman and have always worked admirably with the former international,” explains De Telegraaf’s desire for many players.
Van Gaal also called Koeman his “ideal successor” and advised KNVB to take Koeman. “They consulted me, and I have an opinion on it. It’s not that difficult. A year ago I was the only coach available with experience, and that now applies to Koeman. He would be a good successor.”
