Utrecht coach to leave at end of season

25 March 2015, 12:59

Amsterdam - Utrecht coach Robby Alflen and his advisor Cor Adriaanse will step down from their roles with the Dutch club at the end of the season.

"At the start of the season we agreed a one-year deal with Robby Alflen as head coach and Cor Adriaanse as technical advisor alongside him. We have evaluated this decision and come to the conclusion it is not ideal for FC Utrecht," the club said in a statement on Wednesday.
