Pardew already under pressure at ADO Den Haag

ADO Den Haag coach Alan Pardew is already under pressure at the Eredivisie strugglers.

The former Newcastle United and Crystal Palace manager has failed to lift ADO away from the dropzone and there's concerns that little has improved since he replaced Alfons Groenendijk.

Algemeen Dagblad has accused Pardew of knowing little about the local competition, stating: "Who is playing in the Eredivisie? Pardew does not seem to have a clue. Last week, insiders report, he did not yet know if and where competition matches can be seen on TV, so it sounds.

"In the dressing room it starts to rumble and a discord arises between the Dutch and the English. Pardew is in control at ADO and his assistants Chris Powell and Paul Butler barely contradict the trainer."

It's also suggested ADO are in no position to dismiss Pardew due to the finances involved in paying him out.
