Utrecht owner Frans van Seumeren has said it is unlikely that Mark van Bommel and Wesley Sneijder will be appointed as their new permanent coaching team with Rene Hake set to remain on.

Hake was appointed interim head coach to replace John van den Brom who decided to leave for Genk. However, Hake is still unsure whether he will stay on in the role until the end of the season or further.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Frans van Seumeren stated he is happy with the job that Hake is doing, and he could stay on. He said, “We have not made a decision yet. I can say that we are satisfied with René so far. He is a demanding trainer, he has a strong personality and discipline is highly regarded in his vocabulary. In that respect, I think he is definitely a serious option. It’s a bonus if the players are crazy with him, but that’s not all.”

Mark van Bommel has been linked with the job and Wesley Sneijder as a possible assistant. However, that is not likely according to Van Seumeren,  “I have heard those rumors too. But I have not thought about it at all. I do not think that chance is high.”

Speaking after the 2-2 draw against AZ Alkmaar, Hake said he has an appointment with Van Seumeren in the coming days to discuss his future, “I don’t know if that is tomorrow, but we will have an appointment in the coming days. Then we will have a quiet chat about how things will continue.”
