Dick Advocaat: Set for PSV exit

PSV Eindhoven technical manager Marcel Brands has admitted it is "unlikely" Dick Advocaat will stay with the club beyond the current season.

Philip Cocu, who was caretaker manager at the end of last season before Advocaat's appointment in the summer, is widely expected to be appointed as the former Holland coach's replacement.

When asked whether Advocaat would still be at the club next season, Brands told Studio Voetbal: "It is unlikely that he will."

Cocu is currently coaching in PSV's youth set-up and it is expected Ernest Faber will move up with him as assistant manager although Brands admits another coach will also be brought in.

"We have spoken internally with those guys," he said. "We know what is happening with them.

"There will be a third guy to come."

PSV currently sit second in the Eredivisie table, three points behind Ajax, and the two clubs meet on Sunday in a game which will go a long way to deciding the destination of the title.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
