maasMaas has stepped up to become head coach of Vitesse after Peter Bosz left to take over at Maccabi Tel Aviv during the winter break.

Maas spoke to Omroep Gelderland about the challenges ahead for the remainder of the season, coupled with the differences of stepping up from assistant to manager. He stressed above all that continuity is key to Vitesse hopes.

He said, “It’s completely different as manager than assistant for example I get up at 5 o’clock and then get set to  leave for training and then I do not leave the club until 7 o’clock at night. As assistant you get a bit more of a lay in.

“There are always things that you take with you into management but we are a club with a vision and the manor in which we want to play football so things will not change too much “.

“We will continue to carry on where Peter Bosz left I think it is only logical I mean if something works well for us I am not going to change it.”

Looking ahead to his management bow in Leeuwarden tonight Rob Maas stated the following ” it will be a tough game Cambuur won their last two games before the winter break and they have a fanatical home crowd so I expect a fully motivated Cambuur as opponent. I would be happy to start my reign with a repeat of last season’s game in Leeuwarden in which Vitesse won 2-0 “.
