thumbnail Hello,

The Dutch coach will be evaluated following the European Championship in Poland and Ukraine, with future squad building said to be the reason behind a possible change

Bert van Marwijk's position as head coach of Netherlands will be reviewed after Euro 2012, according to the chairman of the Dutch FA.

Bert van Oostveen told Voetbal International that he will re-assess van Marwijk's role, who is contracted until 2016, and that building the squad for future tournaments would be the reason behind any future change of management. 

"It's a logical moment," he said, referring to Van Marwijk's upcoming performance review.

"When you look at the age of the current players, we have to bring in some new blood. For the 2014 World Cup, but especially for the Euro 2016.

"If we had a contract to 2014, the team could fulfil this project with the current players. We are looking forward to 2016 so we are monitoring the process of renewing the squad. Of course we don't want the lose the quality of the current team."

The chairman said that if Van Marwijk was to leave the national team set-up and return to club management, he would have many options to chose from.

"There is no shortlist of clubs where Van Marwijk can go. We just know that Bert still has the ambition to train a top club once more. If that's possible, we'll give him the chance. We made agreements about the moment when he can leave the Dutch FA."

Following successive defeats in their opening two games of the tournament and a reported player revolt led by Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart, the news comes as another blow to morale ahead of Oranje's make-or-break match against Portugal on Sunday.
