De Boer and Cocu to return after Euro’s

Frank de Boer and Phillip Cocu are to return to the Netherlands national team as assistants to Bert van Marwijk, the man who will succeed Marco van Basten after Euro 2008.

The two former Dutch internationals will join third assistant Dick Voorn and current goalkeeping coach Ruud Hesp to complete the managerial team that will attempt to lead Holland to the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.

“I am happy with this set-up,” said 55-year-old Van Marwijk. “I think it is important that Frank and Phillip played almost 220 international matches between them. As players they took responsibility and will certainly do that again.”
