Veteran coach Dick Advocaat extends Feyenoord contract
Feyenoord, which announced the contract extension Tuesday, hired Advocaat in late October to succeed Jaap Stam, who resigned after less than half a season in charge and with the team struggling at 12th in the Eredivisie.
Advocaat said it felt strange to extend his contract amid the uncertainty of the virus restrictions, but it also spurred him to build on the team’s form before the enforced stop.
“Before everything ground to a halt, we at Feyenoord were putting together something great; something was building in the team,” he said in a statement posted on the club’s website. “I, the team and staff, want to finish it.”
