Current interim manager of FC Emmen, Gert Heerkes, will remain in charge until the end of the season before the 43-year-old takes charge.

FC Emmen lost their previous league match away at league leaders Sparta Rotterdam last Friday but they currently sit 5th in the Jupiler League with 43 points after 30 matches and are involved in the race for promotion to the Eredivisie.
