“Whether I will be consultant keep, depends on the interpretation of the staff towards the CHAMPIONSHIP 2017”, says De Haan in conversation with NUsport. “I still don’t know what to do now to further the plan is and who the new coach is.”

The Cockerel is since last summer adviser of the Oranjevrouwen and he was satisfied with the cooperation with Of the Avenue.

The KNVB reported Friday, however, that the 47-year-old former player of Sparta dismissed because there is not enough confidence is that he is the right person to be the team also in the last stage towards the EK good to guide.

The Rooster knew Tuesday all of the sudden departure of Van der Laan. “Curt called me when self. How he was thinking? That you need him to ask. But it was a blow to him. He is a young ambitious trainer and then this happens. That is worthless for him.”


If The Cock had located was then, Van der Laan, who, in October 2015, in taipei, taiwan as a coach, just continued to serve until the european CHAMPIONSHIPS, next summer in the Netherlands is held.

“The cooperation with Arjan was hartstikkene fine. He worked very hard. In my evaluation with Hans van Breukelen (technical director KNVB, ed.) I also indicated that I was satisfied. But I don’t know what was said in the evaluation with the players and the staff. Apparently, Arjan otherwise assessed. I find that very unfortunate.”
