Frank de Boer wordt de nieuwe bondscoach van het Nederlands Elftal; in met name Engeland en Italië, maar ook in bijvoorbeeld Amerika, kunnen veel voetballiefhebbers dat maar moeilijk geloven. Dat heeft natuurlijk alles te maken met de mislukte periodes van de trainer bij Crystal Palace, Inter Milan en - in mindere mate - Atlanta United. Op Twitter gaat het buitenland dan ook los over het nieuws.
Een greep uit de reacties:
What ???? @Frank de Boer is the new national coach of the Dutch national team, De Telegraaf reports. He will sign a contract until 2022.🙄👀Good luck😎 1st match is only 19 days from now, so it lasts longer than at #Crystal Palace and #Inter— angela64 (@angela64) September 23, 2020
Frank de Boer - the biggest charlatan in management since...— HarlowGlobetrotter (@CheeseRoomHG) September 23, 2020
the Dutch really must talk a very good game.
How does De Boer keep failing upwards? I was looking forward to seeing the Dutch team play in the next world cup.. now, we'll have to see.— Second Yellow (@2ndYellow) September 23, 2020
So when you ask yourself why Frank De Boer is deserving of the Dutch National Team head coaching job remember that in recent past the managers of this powerhouse nation haven't necessarily had the most outstandingly elite pedigree. https://t.co/KiXVRcTNj1— Nico Cantor (@Nicocantor1) September 22, 2020

Failing upward. It still exists.— Gulf Coast Pigskin (@PigskinGulf) September 22, 2020
Sorry to the Dutch in advance.— Stormy G (@SDNR87) September 22, 2020
Of all his failings, Frank De Boer went to the MLS, didn’t succeed but the Dutch have cherrypicked him to take up the national team role. How many more chances before they know he’s not it?— Yaw (@theyawofosu) September 22, 2020
Really? They couldn’t find any better coach than Frank De Boer?— Mo (@SlimBouler1) September 22, 2020
His wasn’t successful at Crystal Palace & Atalanta United.
Imo Clarence Seedorf or Patrick Kluivert, both Dutch legends would make better coaches than Frank De Boer. https://t.co/zziYNhAvAa
