Trainer Ernie Brandts will not be in front of the FC Eindhoven group in the coming days. The ailing club from the Kitchen Champion Division has made that decision after the group of players has lost confidence in the technical staff.
It Eindhovens Dagblad reported Monday evening that a vote showed that there is no support for Brandts anymore within the selection. There is reportedly dissatisfaction with the tactical and football-technical approach of the 65-year-old trainer and his resigned attitude after defeats.
Within the technical staff, it has not been going well between certain people for months and according to the players there is a lack of unity. FC Eindhoven does not want to confirm the reporting, but the club does report that it has been decided “by mutual agreement” that Brandts will not be in front of the group in the coming days.
“In the coming days FC Eindhoven will be considering the future of the current technical staff. After discussions with the technical staff and the players group, the club will take the time to come to a suitable solution”, FC Eindhoven writes in a statement on the site. .
Not all members of the coaching staff would have lost the confidence of the players. According to it Eindhovens Dagblad the selection wants assistant trainer Ivo Rossen to stand in front of the group. Brandts has been a trainer of FC Eindhoven since the summer of 2019, which recently expressed its intention to extend his contract.
Nevertheless, the current unrest at FC Eindhoven does not come as a great surprise, because the club is in a dramatic period. Of the sixteen duels this calendar year, the Eindhoven team won only one: on April 5 against low flyer FC Dordrecht (1-5). FC Eindhoven occupies the sixteenth place in the Kitchen Champion Division.
