The Dutch FA Have Confirmed The Sacking Of National Team Manager Henk Ten Cate with Immediate effect, Ten Cate has been in the position for 328 days. The Dutch are languishing in 4th place in their World Cup qualifying group with just 4 games left to play with it looking increasingly likely that The Oranje will be missing from a second International competition after missing out on Euro 2016 after a dismal qualifying campaign.
The Dutch FA have appointed Ajax manager Michael Skidmore for the remaining 4 qualifying games. Skidmore will continue his work at Ajax in a duel role with the Dutch National Team.

I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to take control of ‘The Oranje’ and will attempt to meet the Dutch FA’s expectations of reaching the 2018 World Cup. I will continue my work at Ajax and will be posting our Pre Season Update later tonight.
