Netherlands has candidate for coach, while France might lose one

Ruud Gullit

After different but both disappointing results, The Dutch and French teams are facing their own upheavals on management.

Feyenoord coach Ronald Koeman believes that Ruud Gullit is qualified to take charge of the Netherlands national team following Bert van Marwijk's resignation in the aftermath of their elimination at Euro 2012.

Koeman admitted he is attracted to the prospect of the position but he expects to remain in Rotterdam next season, instead proposing Gullit as a quality solution.

"It is not a secret that I have the ambition to coach Netherlands," Koeman told voetbalzone.nl. "But I have a contract with Feyenoord and there is a not a clause that will allow me to leave.

"I will coach Feyenoord next season, that is for sure.

"Ruud Gullit? He would be a good choice."

Former Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt, who will play for Fenerbahce next season, stated that he still holds Van Marwijk in high regard despite the Netherlands' performance.

"It is frustrating that my time with Van Marwijk has ended," Kuyt told De Telegraaf. "I stil have a special bond with him. We performed exceptionally well until Euro 2012.

"I will definitely call him to thank him, especially for what we did at the 2010 World Cup."

Meanwhile, French coach Laurent Blanc has revealed that his future as France coach will not be decided yet.

It is expected though that a decision would be made one way or the other after a meeting between the Bleus boss and French Football Federation (FFF) president Noel Le Graet on Thursday.

Blanc revealed after the talks that both parties had decided to take more time.

"We had a meeting," the former France international told reporters. "He [Le Graet] had important obligations. That's why it lasted so long. The interview took place in two stages.

"We discussed things and each of us said what we thought of the situation. We did the technical analysis of the Euros. And, as a result of this reflection, we have put an additional 48 hours on the deadline.

"I said what I had to say to the president. And the additional 48 hours of reflection will allow us to decide on what to do.

"We have a lot of common views. But then, it is also a personal decision. We will continue talking this weekend. You [press] will be informed further at that time."
