Frank De Boer Steps Down As Netherlands Head Coach Following Disappointing Euro 2020 Campaign

The Dutchman has decided to walk away from the national team so they can make a fresh start when their World Cup qualification campaign resumes.

Frank de Boer has stepped down as Netherlands head coach following their disappointing Euro 2020 campaign.

De Boer was handed a two-year contract after replacing Ronald Koeman as the national team boss last September, but has taken the decision not to remain in charge through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Netherlands suffered a surprise last-16 exit to the Czech Republic in the European Championship, and he has taken full responsibility for their failure while citing a desire to remove himself from a potentially volatile situation.
