    Van Gaal named Netherlands head coach as he returns for a third spell

    Louis van Gaal has returned to football management after being named as the new head coach of the Netherlands.

    The 69-year-old, who announced his retirement in 2019, is back for a third spell in charge of the national team as their World Cup qualifying campaign prepares to resume next month.

    His first appointment since leaving Manchester United back in 2016, he takes over following the departure of Frank de Boer, who stepped down after the Netherlands’ last-16 exit from Euro 2020.

    Van Gaal, who will be assisted by Danny Blind and Henk Fraser with Frans Hoek serving as goalkeeping coach, was first in charge between 2000 and 2002 but stepped down after failing to secure qualification for the World Cup.

    He returned for a second stint in 2012, guiding his nation to third place at the World Cup in Brazil two years later before departing for Old Trafford.

    Van Gaal’s first match back in charge sees the Dutch travel to Norway on September 1 in a World Cup qualifier.
