The full supervisory board of the Eredivisie resigned on Monday after a lack of support from clubs.

Chairman John Jaakke and fellow commissioners Peter Fossen and Oege Boonstra all resigned on Monday after feeling they had lost the support of clubs in the Eredivisie.

Jaakke said in a statement, “We find that there is insufficient confidence at a number of Eredivisie clubs. In our opinion, the quality and the continuity have lost it from the animosity and emotion.”

Jaakke said they had a number of good plans which just were not listened to, “Also about governance and decision-making. Nevertheless, a number of clubs did not wish to wait for further discussion about this. In our opinion, this is an undesirable situation for professional football, especially at this time. Professional football faces big questions and challenges. Then there must be trust and that is not enough at a number of clubs.”

The Eredivisie clubs will now discuss the composition of a new board. Jan de Jong remains responsible for the day-to-day management as director.
