Roda JC dismisses trainer Miller, and sets Van der Luer to succeed

Roda JC has trainer Robert Miller Tuesday, dismissed. Clubicoon Eric van der Luer, who last week was still a huge wipe out the pan got from Miller, the rest of the season on the bench at the number seven from the Kitchen Champion Division.

Roda JC reports on its website that “the disappointing results of the last few weeks,” the reason for the non-active set of Miller, who has a contract until 1 July 2019.

The fifty-year-old former professional took last Thursday, the relationships at the club from Kerkrade on edge firmly to get out to Van der Luer.

Miller was angry that the former coach of the beloftenploeg of Roda JC a couple of days earlier openly had spoken critically about striker Tim Vayrynen after a defeat of Jong Roda JC at Young Excelsior (3-0).

“He needs to shut up,” said Miller on his weekly press conference about Van der Luer. “He needs to keep their head down, this kind of stuff you hear in the room to discuss.”

Van der Luer was in conversation with The Observer aware of no evil: “what is this about? I say the things just as they are.” Technical director Harm van Veldhoven said in a comment on the relletje that he with both trainers would talk.

Miller relegated last season with Roda

Miller had since the summer of 2017 head coach of Roda JC. Last season, relegated the former coach of FC Volendam, with the Figures from the Premier league.

The Kerkradenaren perform this season, inconsistent in the Kitchen Champion Division. Roda was in the winter break, eighth, and especially the last few weeks of bad form. The last victory dates back to February 15, (1-0 against SC Cambuur) and out of the last seven duels took on the team of Miller, but with five points.

The 53-year-old Van der Luer played between 1988 and 2002, more than four hundred games for Roda JC. The two-time Orange-international works since the mid-2015 with the club as a scout and trainer of the beloftenploeg.

Van der Luer debuts Sunday in the game against provinciegenoot MVV Maastricht (kick off 16.45) as head coach of Roda JC.

Miller is the fourth coach this season, fired in a Kitchen Champion Division-club. Misha Salden (FC Volendam), Gérard de Nooijer (FC Dordrecht) and Michele Santoni (Almere City FC) went to him for.

Roda JC Kerkrade has head coach Robert Miller on the non-active set. Eric van der Luer takes over his duties until the end of the current season.
