John van den Brom stops at the end of this season as coach of Eredivisie club AZ. The Dutch club confirmed on Monday that in joint consultation decided to go. Van den Brom is since 2014 employed at AZ. His successor is already known: the current assistant Arne Slot.
Van den Brom, whose contract is coming the end of summer, followed in september 2014 Marco van Basten. No trainer was ever served longer in AZ. “I am proud that I as the longest-trainer the books inga”, says the former coach of Anderlecht (2012-2014). “In the past five years, I have beautiful seasons experienced in AZ. But it is still too early to look back. From now on the focus again this season. We are going for the next few months do everything to make the season ‘AZ-worthy’ to exit.”
