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!"

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
