Wednesday.

The North Hollander will soon have a first meeting with the KNVB.

Fifty-year-old De Boer is currently out of work, after he was fired at the end of July as trainer of Atlanta United.

The former coach of Ajax said on Sunday at

FOX Sports

that he would find it "a great honor" to become the national coach of Orange.

The KNVB has to look for a new choice lord due to the abrupt departure of Ronald Koeman to FC Barcelona last month.

Dwight Lodeweges recently honored the Orange squad in the Nations League duels with Poland and Italy as an interim national coach.

The KNVB is said to have first polled Frank Rijkaard and Peter Bosz for the vacant position.

However, Rijkaard did not want to return as a trainer and Bosz would not want to stop as coach of Bayer Leverkusen at this time.

This message will be completed soon.
