New Dortmund boss Bosz latest in great tradition of Dutch Bundesliga coaches

Borussia Dortmund have gone for a bit of Dutch courage in a bid to mount a Bundesliga title challenge next season, but they are not the only club to have placed their faith in a tactician from across the border.

Louis van Gaal

Peter Bosz is the man the Westphalians hope can close the 18-point deficit they had on champions Bayern Munich in the season just ended, and perhaps replicate the success of just one of his compatriots, Louis van Gaal.

bundesliga.com takes a look back at some of the other 16 Dutch coaches before Bosz to have plied their trade in the Bundesliga.

He was not the first Dutch coach in the Bundesliga, though. That award goes to Jan Notermans, who took charge of just 16 games as coach of Arminia Bielefeld from February to October 1972. He has been followed by the likes of Arie Haan, Martin Jol, Dick Advocaat, Gert Verbeek, Andries Jonker and now, Peter Bosz.
