NAC Breda has formed a group called core that will determine the sports policy of the Premier Division in the next period. Van Hooijdonk will participate along with Tim Gilissen, coach Mitchell van der Gaag and Cor van Rooij. NAC thus captures the departure of technical director Hans Smulders, who had to give in because of poor results.
For the latter, former player Sepp de Roover was in the picture, but due to unforeseen particular circumstances Van Rooij was chosen.
The main group is, according to the club, a temporary solution. "With this interim solution, the NAC has sufficient strength in the short term to shape sports policy. As a result, the supervisory board (supervisory board) and the shareholders' committee (cva) can resolve the search for a new administration ( structure) in a careful way. "
Van Hooijdonk: "I have always said that I want to do something for the NAC if my help is needed. It is not my intention to be totally in the spotlight, but in particular to operate in the background and use my network and knowledge to help the NAC move forward "This is not about me, but about the importance of the NAC.In the last few weeks we have talked many times and come to this temporary construction to manage all facets of sports politics with this group.The NAC is my heart and faces a considerable challenge , so it's important to move as fast as possible.Everyone should have the right focus and do what he's good at. Let's put our shoulders underneath with the four of us. "
