Jaap Stam resigns as Feyenoord coach

Jaap Stam has resigned as Feyenoord manager after just seven months at the helm.

The Dutchman only took over June after it was announced back in March that the 67 cap international would succeed Giovanni van Bronckhorst in charge at De Kuip.

The final straw was a shocking 4-0 defeat to Ajax in Amsterdam on Sunday.

The Manchester United Treble winner's team were 2-0 down after just seven minutes and found themselves four down by the break.

Feyenoord also find themselves bottom of their Europa League group, having lost to 1-0 Rangers at Ibrox last month.
