    WILLEMSTAD, Curacao – Remko Bicentini has signed a three-year contract to remain as head coach of Curacao, the Federashon Futbol Korsou announced on its website Tuesday.

    The 48-year-old, who played for NEC Nijmegen in the Dutch Eredivisie, was an assistant under former manager Patrick Kluivert, but was put in charge of the national team in September after the former Netherlands star agreed to become director of football at Paris Saint-Germain.

    Under Bicentini’s leadership, Curacao advanced to the semifinals of the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup by finishing first in its third-round group, topping Antigua & Barbuda (3-0) and Puerto Rico (4-2 aet). That accomplishment also gave the Curacaoans a berth in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, its first-ever qualification to the biennial event.
