The 67-year-old was visibly emotional after the game, and told the press that he would not make an announcement on his future until next week. Advocaat had promised his wife that he would retire and return to Netherlands after his short term deal with Sunderland, but the club’s owners are set to tempt him into staying.

According to the Daily Mail, Sunderland owner Ellis Short will offer Advocaat the opportunity to coach the club next season, but the question is whether the Dutchman will accept, or end his managerial career on a high note.
