Luc Nijholt leaves as assistant coach at FC Utrecht. The experienced Amsterdammer can not find himself in his role in the new structure at the Domstad club.
Since the summer Jean-Paul de Jong is no longer head coach, but manager of the first team. The field training sessions are performed by Rick Kruys and Marinus Dijkhuizen. Nijholt remained assistant to De Jong.
"Although staff and players are behind the new construction, my role as assistant has become different and ultimately too much in the background," Nijholt explains.
The former player of Utrecht and father of NAC player Gianluca Nijholt had been in service with the number five of the past season since the winter break.
