Rob Alflen is definitively not the new coach of NEC. The assistant coach of Heracles Almelo has withdrawn from the discussions with the Nijmegenaren.

“There was too much fuss around our conversations. Since I had no good feeling with this,” said Alflen on the site of Heracles on the failed negotiations.

NEC, on Sunday, by a 1-4 defeat against NAC Breda relegated to the Jupiler League, is looking for a successor of the previous month dismissed Peter Hyballa.

The 49-year-old Alflen was at the top of the list of the degradant, but talks between both parties were Tuesday suspended. According to the former coach of FC Utrecht has nothing to do with the relegation of NEC.

“I have again the ambition to be head coach, but the people with whom I was in Nijmegen, a click was his way or go away. At Heracles, I everyone a good feeling. This is partly why I decided in Almelo to stay.”


Although Heracles reports that Alflen is maintained for the club, also know as technical director Nico-Jan ‘ that the current assistant John Stegeman, preferably on its own legs.
