Ruud Van Nistelrooy resigns as the manager of PSV Eindhoven with immediate effect

Ruud Van Nistelrooy decides to part ways with his club PSV Eindhoven because of lack of support by the board towards the club

(Football news) PSV Eindhoven has stated that Ruud van Nistelrooy has resigned as manager immediately due to a lack of support. Van Nistelrooy, a former forward for Manchester United and Real Madrid, was just appointed head coach in March of last year, but he has resigned ahead of PSV’s final Eredivisie match of the year against AZ Alkmaar on Sunday. In the Dutch premier division, PSV is currently in second place, and their final game will determine whether they finish there or in third place should Ajax pass them.

In the Dutch football league, or Eredivisie, PSV Eindhoven is in second place with 72 points after 33 games. Feyenoord already has 82 points, which gives them the championship. PSV Eindhoven has 22 games out of the 33 played. 

In March of last year, Ruud van Nistelrooy replaced Roger Schmidt as the head coach of PSV Eindhoven. His time there, though, has only been a little over a year, and in a club statement, the ex-Manchester United forward is alleged to have blamed a lack of “support” as the cause of his departure. PSV won the Johan Cruyff Shield and KNVB Cup this season under Van Nistelrooy’s leadership.

The club announced in a statement that Van Nistelrooy did not feel he had enough backing after numerous recent conversations about “internal affairs”. The team wanted him to stay through the balance of the season, but he decided to quit right away. For the journey to Alkmaar, Fred Rutten will be in command.

The statement read: “Van Nistelrooy reported this morning that in his opinion there was not enough support within the club to continue longer. He immediately explained this to the players and staff. PSV regrets Van Nistelrooy’s decision and is grateful to him for winning the Johan Cruyff Shield and the KNVB Cup this season and hopes to close the football year with second place.”
