Danny Blind has been named as the Netherlands new head coach after Guus Hiddink stepped down from his position following his 10 months in charge.

Blind, who worked as Hiddink’s assistant until recently, had earned 42 caps during his 20-year playing career with Ajax and Sparta Rotterdam, the BBC reported.

Hiddink, whose contract runs until the end of Euro 2016, had begun his second stint with the team in August.

Hiddink, however, apologized for leaving the national side five points behind leaders Iceland and three below the Czech Republic in their Euro qualifying group.
