The Former Dutch National Team and German Club Borussia Dortmund Coach Van Marwijk will not take charge of the falcons next summer in Russia despite leading the team to qualification.
He has been replaced by 59 year old Argentinian Edgardo Bauza. Bauza has most recently been in charge of the UAE since, but didn’t continue with them as they failed to qualify for Russia 2018.
