ANKARA (AA) – The Dutch national football team head coach Ronald Koeman was taken to hospital for heart problems on Sunday.

"Ronald Koeman was hospitalized on Sunday evening after chest complaints," the country's governing football association KNVB said in a statement on its website.

It said that Koeman, 57, underwent a "successful cardiac catheterization" and added that the former Netherlands player will return his home on Monday.

The Dutch football body also wished Koeman a quick recovery.

Koeman managed many clubs, including Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven, Feyenoord Rotterdam, Portugal's Benfica, Spanish club Valencia, and English Premier League teams Southampton and Everton.

He was one of the most important football players of his generation, appearing as central defender for Ajax, PSV, Feyenoord, and Spanish powerhouse Barcelona.

Koeman won the 1988 European Championship largely known as the UEFA EURO 88 with the Netherlands, the country's sole major title.
