Beenhakker temporary coach at Feyenoord

Rotterdam football club Feyenoord has appointed Leo Beenhakker temporary coach ahead of the Dutch league play-offs. Erwin Koeman resigned on Thursday. Feyenoord, traditionally one of the big teams of Dutch soccer, finished seventh in the league this year.

Beenhakker led Feyenoord to its last Dutch league title in 1999. ‘This is a duty I can’t turn down,’ Beenhakker, who currently coaches Poland, said.
A place in next season’s UEFA Cup is up for grabs in the play-offs. Feyenoord has its first match against Groningen on Thursday.
