Cocu named new Eindhoven coach

Former PSV Eindhoven player Phillip Cocu has signed a four-year contract to become the Netherlands club's new coach.

Eindhoven, who finished second in the Eredivisie and were beaten in the Dutch cup final by AZ Alkmaar, parted company with coach Dick Advocaat at the end of the season.

Club officials were quick to choose ex-Netherlands international Cocu - who spent two three-year spells as an Eindhoven player and has also served as caretaker manager - as his successor.

His appointment had seemed likely ever since the club revealed that it was unlikely Advocaat would stay beyond the end of the season.

After ending his playing career in 2008, former midfielder Cocu became an Eindhoven youth coach and also assisted Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk for four years.

"My development as coach is comparable to my playing career - step by step, I go to a higher level," Cocu said.

"Now feels like the right time to step in, as the club want to work on a long-term strategy in which youth players will play a big role."
