Ruud van Nistelrooy quits PSV, gives reason


Ruud van Nistelrooy has stepped down as PSV manager after accusing the club of failing to support him.

The former Manchester United attacker started his coaching career with PSV’s youth team and was brought in as the club’s first-team head coach last summer.

Van Nistelrooy’s assistant, Fred Rutten, will take temporary charge of PSV.

A statement from PSV reads: “Head coach Ruud van Nistelrooy announced on Wednesday morning that he would leave PSV.

“After several discussions about internal affairs that have taken place in recent weeks, a meeting took place on Tuesday evening between the Board of Directors and Van Nistelrooy. It was decided to keep the focus on next Sunday’s match against AZ and to continue talking after the season.”

In his first season in charge, Van Nistelrooy’s PSV defeated Ajax in the finals of the Dutch Cup and the Dutch Super Cup.

PSV are in line to finish second in the Eredivisie this season.
