He said, “I am a little surprised that I was considered for the job because I am an unknown in this country but NEC have done their due diligence.

” I have a Dutch link of course with my mother hailing from Rotterdam.

“I have ambition and I want NEC to perform well but we must also be realistic.

“I want to bring my vision to NEC which is playing offensive football whilst remaining realistic and modest in our approach to games”.
