Dick Advocaat was there Sunday after the relegation from the Eredivisie Sparta Rotterdam quite through. The 70-year-old coach, however, found that there was little fell off things on the 1-3 defeat in the return in own home against FC Emmen in the finals of the play-offs.
“I think it’s especially terrible for Sparta. This is a nice club where nice people work”, was the first reaction of a Lawyer in the catacombs of The Castle.
“What it makes me is not as important. I have a great career. We will see where that ends. That would be best for Sparta.”
Lawyer took after the winter break the baton over from the sacked Alex Pastoor. At that moment it was Sparta, the seventeenth and penultimate place and seemed to be enforcement already has a tough job to be.
“I knew when I was at this job started. We hoped it all to be able to run. that is not successful. We are all guilty of. I also.”
Yet a Lawyer there is absolutely no regret that he has stepped in Sparta. He had only a lot more expected.
“I thought for sure that I would succeed. A team-drop is surely not so difficult? But I knew the players don’t. I was coach of the Dutch national team so I watched other players. But then I’m still stubborn to say: what one can’t, I can.”
