Directly in the first match of his fifth period as (interim)coach of Vitesse knew Edward Control two records to his name.
Edward Control, record-holder, the bank of Vitesse.
The 7-0 victory over Sparta was the greatest victory ever of Vitesse, but it was also the 139e contest of Control as head coach, with which he joined the Arnhem club the trainer with the most Eredivisie-matches behind his name has become.
Especially with that last Control is honored. “I think that’s really fun. That is something that is part of the history of the club,” said the interim coach, who tonight against AZ a continued need to see to give to his droomstart.
Vitesse with 45 points, the seventh and with a number of other clubs embroiled in a battle for three places for the play-offs for European football. Also, SC Heerenveen (6th, 46 points), PEC Zwolle (8th, 44 points), ADO Den Haag (9th, 43 points), Excelsior (10th, 39 points), and even Heracles Almelo (11th, 37 points) are still promising. Only FC Utrecht, with 49 points, fifth state, seems already assured of the seizoenstoetje.
