After being appointed as new ADO Den Haag manager, Alfons Groenendijk vowed to help retain the club’s Eredivisie status this season.
Groenendijk agreed to sign a deal lasting until the end of the current season, with the option of a further two years inserted through a clause.
The 52-year-old joins the 16th placed side after the parted ways with Zeljko Petrovic on Tuesday due to a nine game winless run.
"Naturally I have kept an eye on the recent goings-on at ADO Den Haag behind the scenes. I believe that we can concentrate on the football with the players we have in the squad," the former Excelsior boss told NOS.
"I will do everything I can to keep this club in the Eredivisie. Relegation football is not the nicest football but often exciting with the pressures involved.
"During my playing career I had a great time here and I believe that together with the supporters we will work together to help ADO Den Haag move forward."
