Dick Advocaat has confirmed that he will step down as head coach of Feyenoord after this season and retire.

The 73-year-old became Feyenoord head coach when Jaap Stam was sacked last December, and is under contract until the end of this season.

Advocaat has decided to announce his decision to leave Feyenoord after this season and he will retire.

In a statement on the Feyenoord website, Advocaat said, “Certainly if a number of injured people return, we can still have a very good season. I will do everything I can, but after that, it has been good. I know I’ve said that before. But this time you can keep me to it: the coming months will really be my last as a club trainer. After a long and wonderful career, Feyenoord is a great club to close with. Hopefully – and I believe in that – we will be able to show good things before that.”

Feyenoord are still unbeaten in the Eredivisie since Advocaat took charge, with 17 wins and seven draws in 24 games.
