Fraser: Vitas timing was perfect

New Vitesse manager Henk Fraser admits the timing of his appointment came at the perfect time in his managerial career.

Fraser left ADO Den Haag to replace Rob Maas at the GelreDome on Monday and said at his unveiling that he's relishing the new challenge.

"I would be lying if I did not admit that Vitesse Arnhem is a bigger challenge than ADO Den Haag and I will also not deny that this offer came at a perfect time," he admitted.

Dutch publication NOS questioned his thinking behind the move to the club that's often been criticised for its links with Chelsea.

The Blues currently use Vitas as their feeder club, sending a number of their academy graduates to Arnheim, which causes a sense of instability as their entire squad changes each season.

However, Fraser played down the issues brought up by the media, claiming he has no problems with the current set-up.

"People claim that I am also difficult and I believe it is not so bad and what is difficult, people who are driven and who have ambitions and who have an outspoken opinion too those people are often described as difficult," he said.

"As far as I am concerned I am in a great environment to perform and this club presents a challenge."
