Danny Blind sacked as Netherlands coach

Danny Blind has been sacked as Netherlands head coach,
the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) has

Ajax great Blind was appointed as Guus Hiddink’s
successor midway through the Oranje’s ill-fated
qualification bid for Euro 2016.

A chastening 2-0 loss to Bulgaria on Saturday left the
beaten 2010 World Cup finalists facing the prospect of
missing out on a second major tournament in

Blind admitted his decision to select 17-year-old Ajax
prospect Matthijs de Ligt for what turned out to be a
nightmare debut in defence was an error and afterwards
stated he would consider his future.

On Sunday, the 55-year-old’s employers made the
decision for him.

“We have respect for what Danny did for us and for the
team during his tenure,” KNVB director Jean Paul
Decossaux said in a statement.

“But because the sporting results are unfortunately
disappointing, and because qualifying for the World Cup
in Russia is now in difficulty, we unfortunately feel
forced to relieve him.”

Blind added: “We were on a good roll. I think the game
against Bulgaria was decisive.

“I gave everything I had. It’s too bad that it stops with
this now.”

Under-21 boss Fred Grim will take interim charge when
Netherlands host Italy in a friendly at the Amsterdam
Arena. Their next Group A qualifier is at home to
minnows Luxembourg in June.

Netherlands are fourth in Group A, six points behind
leaders France and three shy of play-off incumbents
