Van der Vaart made an open application for a vacancy for Fraser

April 13, 2022 – Rafael van der Vaart is currently an (assistant) coach in Esbjerg, but the question is how long. Van der Vaart works there because his girlfriend Estavana Polman plays handball in Denmark. However, Polman has to leave his club, so there is a good chance that Van der Vaart will close the door behind him. In his column in De Telegraaf, he made an open application to Orange, although he himself denies it.

Henk Fraser will be announced as the new coach of FC Utrecht this week. However, club owner Frans van Seumeren demanded that Fraser should also relinquish his role as assistant to the Dutch team. Fraser has complied with this request, so he will not go to the Qatari World Cup in orange this winter.

This means that the position of assistant coach of national team coach Louis van Gaal is vacant and Van der Vaart is interested in it. “After announcing that Henk Fraser is leaving Louis van Gaal’s assistant, many people have asked me if I see a role in the Dutch team. I like working in Denmark and I don’t need a (hidden) statement.

“But I never say ‘no’ to the Dutch national team. If you ask me if the World Cup selection needs someone who can create a good atmosphere, I will answer ‘yes’. I was thinking that myself. For example, Van der Vaart still makes a kind statement to Van Gaal: “Whoever needs me comes to me and then the advantage is that I have also played some international matches and tournaments.”
