De Haan told his press conference, “I’m staying,”

“It’s tough, because I’m not young anymore, but for the club this is the best.”

Since De Haan took charge Heerenveen’s form has improved drastically with four wins and one draw out of the last seven league games. The club have risen to 10th in the table.
