ADO Den Haag have confirmed that the contract of Alan Pardew will not be renewed and he leaves the club along with his assistants.

Pardew was appointed as the ADO Den Haag boss in January with the task of keeping the club in the Eredivisie. The club won only once and drew three games of his tenure, but are set to stay up after the KNVB announced that relegation had been postponed for this season.

According to VI, Pardew was open to staying but ADO Den Haag have decided against offering the Englishman a new deal, and he departs, along with assistants Chris Powell and Paul Butler.

Pardew said on the club’s website, “I want to thank everyone at ADO Den Haag for the past few months. In particular the players, who gave everything on the field. I also want to thank, also on behalf of Chris, Mohammed Hamdi and major shareholder United Vansen for their support.

“I have positive feelings for this club and I have enjoyed the passion of the fans. I look back on a beautiful adventure in the Netherlands. It is a pity that the collaboration ends, but I wish ADO Den Haag every success in the future.”

Pardew had a difficult relationship with the club’s fanbase and some of the senior players, making the departure inevitable.

ADO Den Haag are now set to approach Maurice Steijn for the vacant position.
