‘Drama for KNVB: Wiegman is leaving and will be presented in England on Friday’


Sarina Wiegman will be the new national coach of the England women’s football team, according to Sky Sports. The 50-year-old Wiegman, who has achieved success with the Orange Lionesses in recent seasons, will be Phil Neville’s successor.

Wiegman and the FA will most likely reach an agreement on Friday, it sounds from England. In the run-up to the Olympic Games and the European Championship in 2022, the KNVB must therefore look for a new national coach for the Orange Lionesses. Neville, who is still the national coach of the English football women, was fixed until mid-2021 but has already announced that he will not serve his contract. Wiegman can therefore start immediately.

After the 50-year-old from The Hague had the women’s teams of Ter Leede and ADO Den Haag under her wing, she became an assistant with the Dutch national team. She was appointed national coach in January 2017, after which she immediately became European champion in her own country in the summer of that year. In the summer of 2019, she reached the final of the World Cup with the Oranje Leeuwinnen, in which she lost to the United States.
