The Dutch Football Association announced that Ronald Koeman, who will succeed Louis van Gaal in the training of the national team “The Mills” after the World Cup in Qatar 2022, has chosen his brother Erwin as his assistant.
Erwin Koeman, 60, was his brother’s assistant at the English clubs Everton and Southampton.
“Irwin’s three and a half years in England have taught me that he has a good vision of things and that we work in an integrated way,” Koeman said, according to the statement. Erwin Koeman earned 31 caps for the Netherlands as a midfielder, and was part of the team that won the European Nations Championship in 1988, and also played in the 1990 World Cup.
