lodewegesOn Tuesday it was confirmed that Lodeweges will take over as Heerenveen boss in the summer, leading to huge protests from fans of Cambuur.

Cambuur and Heerenveen are fierce rivals, and the news that Lodeweges was taking over was not met well by fans of the Leeuwarden side, who stormed the stadium in protest at their bosses apparent betrayal. The actions of the fans forced Lodeweges to flee the stadium after fears for his safety with a mob gathering.

Today Cambuur announced on their official site that Lodeweges had left the club with immediate effect, and that assistant coach Henk de Jong will take charge until the end of the season.

Under the 56-year-olds reign Cambuur gained promotion from the Eerste Divisie to the Eredivisie, and are currently sitting safe in 11th place.
