Mitchell van der Gaag has resigned from his role as head coach of NAC Breda.

Van der Gaag left Excelsior after two good years in charge of the Rotterdam minnows to take over at NAC Breda in the summer. However, the club have struggled this season and are currently eight points adrift at the bottom of the Eredivisie.

On Monday, van der Gaag confirmed to Voetbal International that he had resigned from his position after the 4-0 loss to Utrecht at the weekend.

He told VI, “It is done, I cannot do more than this. I direct my own resignation.

“I didn’t manage it, I blame myself. I am responsible. Maybe people will see it as walking away, I see it as the only way out. For me and for the club. I could have finished the season, but I don’t see any improvement. After Utrecht I couldn’t think of anything positive. Then you have to be honest. ”

Van der Gaag had a contract with NAC until 2020 but they will now look for a new head coach, who will probably have to begin preparations for the Keuken Kampioen Divisie next season.
