Ruud van Nistelrooy has left his role as PSV Eindhoven’s head coach due to “a lack of support within the club,” according to a statement from the team.
After assuming the position in March 2022, Van Nistelrooy won both the Dutch Cup and Dutch Super Cup.
The 46-year-old quit after conversations about his future were scheduled to take place on Sunday, according to PSV.
The second-placed club in the Eredivisie stated that they “regretted” his choice.
PSV are three points above Ajax in third position and 10 points behind Champions Feyenoord on the table.
For them to be guaranteed a place in the Champions League qualification round, they must avoid losing to AZ Alkmaar this weekend.
The club released a statement which read:
“Van Nistelrooy told the first-team squad and coaching staff that he would be stepping down with immediate effect, due to a lack of support within the club,” the club said.
“PSV regrets his decision and is grateful to him for winning the Johan Cruijff Shield and the Dutch Cup, and hopes to finish the season in second place”
Fred Ruttenan who is Van Nistelrooy’s assistant will temporarily take charge of the club’s remaining matches.
