VVV-Venlo appoint Derksen

Dirk Jan Derksen has been appointed head coach of Eredivisie strugglers VVV-Venlo.

The former Roda JC, FC Zwolle, Austria Vienna and VVV striker will oversee his first game at Roda on Saturday.

"As a player, you just want to work on your passion. I seize this opportunity with both hands and then we'll see where it leads,'' he said. "My primary goal is to contribute to the survival of VVV-Venlo.''

Derksen's position will be reviewed at the end of the season.

Technical director Mario Captein said: "We will look at how this season ends and discuss whether this is the basis for a structural addition to the technical staff.''

The club lie second-bottom of the Eredivisie standings with four games remaining of the regular season. They are 15 points adrift of fourth-bottom Vitesse Arnhem, so know the best they can hope for is a relegation play-off place.
