The roads of John Stegeman and Heracles Almelo separate after this season. The club reports this on Wednesday via the official channels. After four seasons, Stegeman’s main trainership at the Eredivisie club will therefore come to an end,”In good harmony we have decided to change course after this season,” says Managing Director Rob Toussaint.
Stegeman explains his departure on the club website:”I still like it well at the club. Despite that, after almost four years of main training for both parties, I think it would be good for both parties to look further after this season “, says the coach,” Together with the other members of the staff and the players’ group, I will do everything I can to bring the current season to a successful conclusion. I’m always grateful to the club for giving me the chance and confidence to prove myself as a main coach.
Stegeman was appointed as Heracles assistant trainer in 2008 and in 2014 he became the ultimate responsible person,”We are very grateful to John Stegeman for his commitment to the club. He has made an important contribution to the performance of the past years,”says Toussaint,” He managed to keep the club in a difficult season directly for the Eredivisie and reached European football in 2016,”Whoever becomes Stegeman’s successor is as yet unclear. Heracles hopes to implement the main trainership for next season in the short term.
