FC Utrecht to bid farewell to manager Jan Wouters

Last updated 7 years ago by UtrechtCentral.com

FC Utrecht will be parting with FC Utrecht manager, Jan Wouters, at seasons end as a number of names arise as to who will become succeeding manager.

Dutch football legends like Co Adriaanse, Marco van Basten and John van den Brom have all been proposed. Rob Alflen, who is currently assistant manager for FC Utrecht, seems to be the easiest solution.

“It’s not that we’re necessarily look for a big name. We especially want someone who understands the Utrecht football culture and delivers,” said club director, Wilco van Schaik.

[GARD align=”right”]Van Schaik did not mention whether he had been in touch with the new candidates. He has however been informed about Alflen’s keen interest to take over the responsibility. “I think he is ready to become head coach,” said Wilco van Schaik.

Rob Alflen commented, “My ambition is to become head trainer for FC Utrecht.” Rob Alflen played for FC Utrecht from 1985 to 1991. He scored 15 goals during 142 appearances and became club trainer in 2009. He was appointed assistant coach by Jan Wouters who took over the position as coach from Erwin Koeman in 2011.
