Monday 07 July 2014
The Dutch FA said in a statement on Sunday that Stuivenberg had quit as coach of its under-21 team in order to move to Old Trafford.
The 43-year-old has been in charge of the under-21s for the past year and also won the European Championship at under-17 level with the Dutch in 2011 and 2012.
"We are thankful to Stuivenberg for his contribution to the development of Dutch talent. He did a fantastic job with the under-17s and we wish him luck in the new direction that he now takes," said FA technical director Jelle Goes.
