Dutch international Wesley Sneijder has explained how new boss Guus Hiddink's approach is different to Louis van Gaal's.
The new man has coached the Netherlands before, sitting on the bench between 1994 and 1998 and guiding his side to fourth place at the 1998 World Cup.
Former Inter midfielder Sneijder has been working with Hiddink in the build-up to tonight's friendly against Italy and has given his thoughts on how things have changed.
"Like people I tend to get on with, he's a bit softer than van Gaal. I think he will change things in the team, especially against Italy, because some important players aren't available and some are still short of fitness.
"I still have some work to do to get back in top shape.
"I have seen lots of top coaches on the Netherlands bench but I was crazy about Marco van Basten. He was one of the greatest players in history who always had a hunger to learn and he was the same as a coach."
