Bert van Marwijk has stepped down as Holland coach, the Dutch FA (KNVB) announced yesterday

The 60-year-old’s resignation follows a disappointing showing at Euro 2012, in which Oranje were knocked out at the group stage without taking a point.

A statement on the KNVB’s website said: “On the initiative of Bert van Marwijk, the KNVB and Bert van Marwijk decided on Wednesday to end the coach’s contract with immediate effect.

“The agreement between the FA and coach officially ran until the 2016 European Championship.”
