PSV Eindhoven are looking to speed up the appointment of former Lyon and Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz, according to De Telegraaf. The club wants to fill the vacant manager position as quickly as possible in order to begin preparations for next season.
The director of football at PSV, Marcel Brands does not want to comment on who the club are currently in talks with, although it’s clear that Peter Bosz is the top candidate. Brands indicated that the appointment could be completed this week. The 61-year-old said ‘I hope it will work this week, but I’m not sure. There’s a lot involved. We don’t have it completely in our hands. You have to deal with a lot of factors. The aim is to provide clarity as soon as possible.’
Brands explained the importance of hiring the right manager at PSV. ‘We have a number of important spearheads and a philosophy within the club and a manager has to fit in with that,’ he said. ‘A new manager should not turn the whole club upside down and fit in with the vision and the PSV club. That is something you immediately make clear in the first interview and you also look for the candidates for that.’
Last month Ruud van Nistelrooy stepped down as PSV’s head coach less than a week before the final game of the season. Having just won the KNVB Cup, Ruud resigned after rumours started to circulate that several players had made complaints about his style of coaching. Peter Bosz could be announced as the new manager very soon.
