New coach Club Brugge: “He is the dream candidate”

Club Brugge kicks off its Champions’ Play-Offs campaign on Monday afternoon with a ‘visit’ to Cercle Brugge. In the meantime, the club management is busy with completely different matters. The search is underway for a new head coach for next season.

As is known, Club said goodbye to Ronny Deila shortly after the regular competition. Nicky Hayen was subsequently appointed as successor, but his assignment is only temporary until the end of this season. As a result, the people of Bruges have to look for a new T1 for the sixth time in more than two years.

Various routes are being followed for this purpose. And apparently Ruud dan Nistelrooij is one of them. The former Dutch international was very successful as a player. As a striker, he played for years defending the colors of top European clubs such as Real Madrid and Manchester United. In his own country, he made waves at PSV at the beginning of this century.

Strong work at PSV

It was also at that club that he took his first steps as a trainer after his playing career. After briefly serving as an assistant coach for the national team, Van Nistelrooij started working in the PSV youth academy. There he eventually worked his way up to head coach of the first team. Under his reign, the Eindhoven team won the Dutch super cup and the cup.

However, at the end of last season, Van Nistelrooij decided to leave the Philips Stadium on his own initiative due to internal struggles. The former striker has been without a club since then. But columnist Nico Dijkshoorn hopes that Club will change that. “He is the dream candidate,” he said The newspapaer.

Correct values ​​and standards

According to Dijkshoorn, Van Nistelrooij not only has the necessary experience, both as a player and as a trainer. He also has the right values ​​and standards to pull the current Blauw-Zwart out of the doldrums. “Ruud’s independent thinking and his sense of honesty and his allergy to hypocritical rumblings make him the ideal coach for Club Brugge,” said Dijkshoorn. “Club Brugge needs a coach like that. Not a coach who pretends that working in a medium-sized city full of chocolate and pastries was always his biggest dream, but a coach who, completely independently, takes pleasure in making players better and as offensive as possible. wants to play football.”
