Edgar Davids: Dutchman staying on as Barnet head coach

There had been speculation that the 40-year-old former Ajax, Juventus and Tottenham midfielder could leave the Bees following their relegation from League Two to the Conference Premier.

However the Dutchman, who took sole charge of the team in December 2012 following the departure of Mark Robson, is keen to stay with Barnet as they seek an immediate return to the Football League and move into their new ground at The Hive.

Barnet chairman Tony Kleanthous told the club's official website: "I am thrilled that Edgar has decided to remain with the club.

"The way last season ended was disappointing for everyone involved but there is no doubt in my mind that Edgar is the right man to take us forward.

"He has started a football revolution here and we hope we can maintain the attractive style of play we developed under him in the Football League.

"It is a measure of the man that he wants to stay to finish the job he started. Once a bee always a bee!"

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
