Rules imposed by FIFA and its members prohibit outside influence on its independence.

ZURICH -- FIFA has lifted the Pakistan football federation's suspension, imposed in October because of outside interference by a court.

FIFA said Pakistan's federation had this month "successfully taken back control" of its offices and accounts from a court-appointed administrator.

The appointment of the ex-Netherlands international was announced by the country's football association (KNVB) on Tuesday.

In a statement, the KNVB said Koeman had signed a contract "up to and including the 2022 World Cup," and he was due to speak at a news conference later on Tuesday.

Nico-Jan Hoogma, general manager of Heracles Almelo and a former defender, has been brought in as Koeman's assistant.
