PSV Eindhoven have confirmed that Roger Schmidt will be their new head coach. The German will take over from Ernest Faber in the summer.

After the sacking of Mark van Bommel last year, PSV appointed Ernest Faber as interim head coach until a replacement could be found.

On Wednesday, PSV confirmed the appointment of Roger Schmidt, who will sign a two-year contract with the club that begins this summer.

The 52-year-old has previously coached Red Bull Salzburg and Bayer Leverkusen, but has been out of work since leaving Beijing Guoan in China.

Schmidt told the PSV website, “I had a good feeling with PSV from the first interview.

“Of course I knew the club professionally, but I had no specific knowledge of philosophy. During the many conversations with Toon Gerbrands and John de Jong I got a good picture of the way of working and I always realised that PSV’s vision of top football suits me.

“Dutch football has always pleased me and I am really looking forward to working in a completely new environment for me. PSV is completely behind the way of footballs that I stand for. And I support PSV’s demand that the club always play for prizes. My teams play football to win, always. ”
