The Dutch FA said it would move quickly to find a replacement, with the team set to resume their World Cup qualification campaign in September.

His first stint ended in 2002 when the Dutch failed to qualify for the World Cup, but he returned for a more successful spell in 2012, taking his homeland to third place in the World Cup two years later.
He also claimed the LaLiga twice at Barcelona, and won the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.
Van Gaal debuted at Ajax and led them to Champions League glory in the 1994–95 season. He won the FA Cup in two years at United, but was dismissed a few days later.
