According to ESPN, Dick Advocaat is currently in talks to become head coach of the Curaçao national team. The 75-year-old has over 40 years of managerial experience, having managed the likes of the Netherlands national team, Rangers, Sunderland, PSV, Feyenoord and the list goes on. Talks with the Curaçao Union are still ongoing, but it looks positive.
Advocaat will succeed Remko Bicentini as the Curaçao manager. Bicentini was dismissed after the nation missed out on qualification for the Gold Cup following defeat to Saint Kitts and Nevis. Dean Gorré was appointed interim coach after Bicentini’s departure.
Dick Advocaat last managed Eerste Divisie side ADO Den Haag, where he spent one season before stepping down in June. Now, he’s set to take on his sixth job as a national team head coach. Previously, he was also in charge of the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Russia, Serbia and Iraq. At 75 years old, he’s still going strong and aims to continue his successful career as a manager.
