AMSTERDAM: Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman is expected to be discharged from hospital on Monday after being admitted with a heart problem, his agent said.
The 57-year-old had two stents insert into blocked arteries and is in a stable condition, agent Rob Jansen said. He was taken from his home to hospital in Amsterdam by ambulance on Sunday after feeling poorly following a morning cycle ride.
The Dutch football association wished Koeman a speedy recovery. “It was a shock but thankfully it is already a lot better,” the KNVB said.
Koeman has been Dutch coach for just over two years and oversaw the country’s qualification for the European Championship.
The Euros have been postponed to next year.
Koeman, whose playing career included European Cup success with both PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona, was manager at Everton in England before he was named coach of his home nation.
