NAC Breda formed the so-called. The basic group that will determine the Premier League sports policy in the coming period. Van Hooijdonk will take part in this, next to Tim Gilissen, coaches Mitchell van der Gaag and Cor van Rooij. The NAC is also affected by the departure of technical director Hans Smulders, who had to give up due to poor results.
For another, former player Sepp de Roover was in the picture, but Van Rooij was chosen because of unforeseen private circumstances.
The basic group, according to the club, is a temporary solution. "With this interim solution, the NAC has enough strength to adopt a form of sports policy in the short term. As a result, the Supervisory Board and the Joint Stock Commission can carefully examine the search for a new management (structure)."
Van Hooijdonk: "I have always said that I want to do something for the NAC if I need help. It's not my intention to be fully in the spotlight, but especially to work in the background and to use my network and knowledge to help the NAC this is not about me, but about the importance of the NAC. Over the past few weeks, we have often talked to each other and we have come to this temporary construction to manage all aspects of sports policy with this group. with a big challenge, so it's important to get off as soon as possible. vako must have a real focus and do what is good. We will put our shoulders under us with four. "
