Ex-Man Utd star Stam announced as new Feyenoord boss

Ex-Manchester United defender Jaap Stam has been confirmed as Feyenoord's next manager.

The Dutchman will replace Giovanni van Bronckhorst at the end of this season.

"I really enjoy PEC Zwolle, but, for every ambitious coach, if the opportunity arises to work at a club like Feyenoord, you will seriously think about it," Stam told Feyenoord's official website.

"After good and open conversations with (technical director) Martin van Geel about the possibilities and impossibilities at Feyenoord, I soon found out that I would like to go for this opportunity.

"I am grateful to PEC Zwolle for the fact that they understand my ambitions have come quickly to an agreement with Feyenoord.

"In the coming months I will do everything I can to finish the season at PEC Zwolle with the players and the staff. That will really be the focus for me in the coming period."
