Former Everton manager Ronald Koeman had to have heart surgery this weekend after being rushed to hospital with chest pains.
The Dutch FA confirmed that the current Netherlands head coach's surgery was a success.
"Ronald Koeman was hospitalised on Sunday evening after chest complaints," a statement from the KNVB said.
"The 57-year-old coach of the Dutch national team has undergone a successful cardiac catheterisation and will return home tomorrow.
"We wish Ronald a lot of strength and improvement."

I fell out with him the day he told Lukaku that, if he wanted to be regarded as one of the very best footballers, then he would have to leave Everton! I still cannot believe that we employed a manager who made this statement to the press:
"If Romelu was to play at Everton until the end of his career, I know he has left something (behind). His potential is greater and higher than Everton as a final destination."

We werent right for eachother at the end of the day but when all is said and done finishing 7th in his first season wasnt so terrible considering the last 6 years of turbulence.
Wish him well on his recovery.

I'm still far from convinced by the Director of Football model – but he did a good job at Southampton before us, and is currently doing a good job with Holland. I wish him well.

Both JD's but a difference of attitude on this thread.

Think he was shafted by not getting the striker he wanted. His autobiography will be interesting to see who authorised the spending on the motley crew.

Unfortunately, I think the scattergun recruitment process and his ill-defined working relationship with Walsh had a lot more to do with his downfall than his managerial abilities. Ultimately things didn't work out, but I wish him well during his recovery.
