The Netherlands – Ronald Koeman

Ronald Koeman is the current manager of the Netherlands national football team having been appointed to the position in 2018. Born in Zaandam in 1963, Koeman is a legend in both the managerial and the playing side of the game. His playing career particularly is revered; Koeman made a name for himself as 'total footballer' in the style of Johan Cruyff and was capable of playing in a number of different positions in defence and midfield. His free kicks and penalties were the stuff of legend and he is the highest scoring defender in the history of professional football with almost 200 league goals in just over 500 appearances - even for a striker this would be a remarkable return.

He began his career with Gronigen in 1980 when he was just 17. He played almost 100 times for the Dutch club, scoring 33 goals in the process. After this, Koeman made the first truly significant move in his fledgling career. In 1983 he was signed by Ajax, the most prestigious club in Dutch football and, at the time, one of the best in the world. His record for the Dutch giants was similar to at Gronigen, an impressive statistic given the step-up he made in the transfer. In total, Koeman would play 94 times for Ajax, scoring 23 goals in a three season spell. During this stint, Koeman picked up his first honours in football, winning the Eredivisie in the 1985/1985 season and winning the KNVB Cup the following year. It was at Ajax that Koeman was under the supervision of Johan Cruyff whom he would eventually be reunited with at Barcelona.

Koeman then decide it was time for a new challenge. He elected to stay in Netherlands but move to PSV Eindhoven in 1986. His three year spell with the club was glittering to say the least. He played 98 times and scored 51 goals, giving him a goals to game ratio of better than one in two - an absolutely extraordinary record. During these years, Koeman won six trophies. The first was in 1986/1987 when PSV won the Eridivisie. Two more league titles followed in successive years. In this same time frame they won the KNVB Cup twice and, most impressively of all, the European Cup in 1987/1988.

When the opportunity arose for Koeman to be reunited with his old coach Johan Cruyff at Barcelona, Koeman grabbed it with both hands.  His time in Catalonia was nothing short of astonishing. He joined in 1989 and played for six seasons, scoring 67 times in 192 league appearances. In this time, he won an incredible ten trophies. Barca won La Liga four times in succession in an era of utter dominance. They won the Copa Del Ray once in 1989/1990 and the Supercopa de Espana three times in 1991, 1992 and 1993. To top it all off, they won the European Cup at the end of the 1991/1992 season, and the subsequent European Super Cup the following year.

To see out the rest of his playing days, Koeman returned to the Netherlands where he played 61 times for Feyenoord and scored 19 goals in two seasons before hanging up his boots.

Since moving into management, Koeman has taken charge of ten clubs in four different countries. He has won eight trophies in 21 years - most of them came in his time in charge of Ajax. Now, he has made the switch to international football and oversees a resurgent Netherlands team in the hopes of steering them in the direction of a major international trophy.
