ADO Den Haag director Mohammed Hamdi has admitted that he should not have appointed Alan Pardew as their head coach last year.

Pardew took over ADO Den Haag last January and was taking the club towards relegation before the season was ended early. He left the club as soon as the season was officially cancelled.

Speaking to Omroep West, Hamdi said, “It was quite difficult at that time, because many trainers did not dare to step in. It was difficult for sports and the risk of failure was high.

“Still, I would have done it differently with Alan Pardew. We needed a different type of trainer than him at the time. Nothing to the detriment of him as a person and as a trainer, because he has proven himself, but I had to go for a different kind of trainer. I should have made a different decision there. “
