Rijsbergen replaces Beenhakker as T&T coach
Wim Rijsbergen has been named the new head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago national side.
Rijsbergen replaces Leo Beenhakker, who is set to take over as coach of the Polish national team.
'The following (statement) is to confirm that Wim Rijsbergen has accepted the post of head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago Senior Team following meetings with now former head coach Leo Beenhakker, TTFF Special Advisor Jack Warner and General Secretary Richard Groden,' read a statement on the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation's official website.
Rijsbergen, who had been Beenhakker's assistant at the World Cup, will be assisted by Anton Corneal and Dutchman Jan Van Deinsen.
Despite Beenhakker taking over as head coach of Poland, he will remain a 'technical advisor' to the Soca Warriors.
The statement added: 'The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation remains highly appreciative towards Mr Beenhakker for his services towards the uplifting of the country's football and for his guiding of the team to the 2006 World Cup Finals in Germany.
'We also wish him the very best in his new role with the Polish FA.'
