Koeman Does Not Want Netherlands Job
Ronald Koeman has stated he does not want to replace Dick Adcocaat as Netherlands manager and will stay on with Everton.
Netherlands failed to qualify for the World Cup and missed out on a playoff berth to Sweden, Dick Adcocaat is expected to leave his position after his failure.
Koeman has been named as a possible replacement, with the KNVB interested in his services, but the Dutch manager has no designs on leaving Everton.
“I am not surprised they put my name in because they did the same some years ago,” he told reporters.
“I am not surprised. But I am Everton manager. That’s the most important and nothing else.
“It’s not realistic now because we have other business to do with Everton.”
“We’ve lost quality in Netherlands,” he continued. “We have no real top European players left. Arjen Robben was maybe the last and he has stopped.
“We have good talents, but they leave Netherlands too quickly and we must change that.
“Belgium and Germany changed a lot of things and we have to as well. But we’ll come back because we’ve always had good players.”
