The Euro 2020 has witnessed its first coaching causality as the Netherlands have sacked Frank de Boer following their elimination from the tournament, the Dutch FA announced on Tuesday.
The Orange Boys suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to Czech Republic in the round of 16.
Dutch FA, Director of Football, Nico-Jan Hoogma said: “Despite Frank’s efforts, the goal of reaching the quarterfinals was not reached. Our choice for Frank turned out differently than we hoped. Now I need to find a successor. Let it be clear that we are not satisfied. We would have probably made this same decision on our own in the next two days.”
The former Crystal Palace and Atlanta United manager was hired in September 2020 after Ronald Koeman joined Barcelona and signed a contract until 2022.
