Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman underwent successful heart surgery on Sunday.

Kwan, a Dutch superhero who played Orange in the early 1970s and early 1990s and until the 1990s, was reportedly treated by experts in Amsterdam.

According to the De Telegraph, Common was taken to the city’s University Medical Center (UMC) and treated with a blocked coronary artery and a stent inserted into a vein.

The De Telegraph, which said Coeman’s wife Bartina and agent Rob Janssen confirmed his information, said the 57-year-old was in stable condition.

A statement from Janssen’s Wasserman Agency later confirmed that his client had undergone surgery and would return to the country on Monday.

“Ronald Koeman was admitted to hospital tonight (Sunday evening) following a complaint on Wednesday. The 57-year-old Dutch national team coach has undergone a successful cardiac catheterization and will return home tomorrow,” it said.

The Dutch Football Association (KNVB) posted a message of support on Twitter: “It’s a push. Fortunately things are getting better. Lots of strength and improvement, coach.”

Coaching enjoyed a great playing life at club level with Groningen, Ajax, PSV, Barcelona and Feyenoord before moving on to coaching.

As head coach of the Netherlands in 2018, he was in charge of Ajax, PSV, Benfica, Southampton, Feyenoord, Valencia and Everton.

The Commonwealth took their country to second place in the inaugural final of the National League in 1990 and qualified for the 2020 Euros, a tournament that was delayed by a year due to a coronavirus epidemic.
