LEO BEENHAKKER GETS PLAYOFFS CARETAKER ROLE

Leo Beenhakker has agreed to return to Feyenoord as caretaker coach for the Uefa Cup playoffs. Beenhakker, who guided the club to its most recent Eredivisie title in 1999, starts his temporary assignment Monday. The current Poland coach was chosen because he fits the profile drawn up by Feyenoord after the departure of Erwin Koeman. The club were looking for someone who has proven able to turn things round in a short space of time and who knows Feyenoord inside out. Beenhakker is not a candidate for a full-time position however. The club’s management continues to deliberate over the vacancy.

Management board members Onno Jacobs and Chris Woerts reach agreement with Beenhakker Saturday morning together with technical manager Peter Bosz. The 64-year-old coach admits that he did not need any time to think the offer over. ‘This a duty call that I cannot refuse. I will do my utmost to ensure that Feyenoord get into Europe despite everything.’ Beenhakker is scheduled to explain his decision in more detail at a press conference ahead of training Sunday.

Beenhakker left Feyenoord in 2000 in spite of having won the title a year early by a country mile. He also guided the club to a successful 1999-2000 season’s Champions League campaign, when Feyenoord were not eliminated until the final game of the second pool stage.
