Streppel: Willem move is positive
The 41-year-old was introduced as the successor to Gert Heerkes
this afternoon, signing a two-year contract with the Tilburg club
that also includes an option for a further year. Streppel joins
from Helmond Sport, who lie third in the Eerste Division. That is
likely to be where Willem find themselves next season, as they lie
five points adrift of VVV-Venlo and the relegation play-offs.
However, Streppel insists this is a promotion. “Although the club
are likely to go down, I see Willem II as a step forward,” he said.
“It’s a good club where there is the potential for something
beautiful. “The ambition of myself and of the club is the same.”
