Kevin Hofland is very disappointed that he was fired on Wednesday as trainer of Fortuna Sittard. The 41-year-old Brunssummer is of the opinion that he was able to turn the tide with the ailing Limburgers.
‘More people think it is a strange decision’
“I am very sad, it hurts that I have no future here. On the other hand, I can put such a dismissal into perspective very well. Nobody is dead. I feel like I am leaving here through the front door,” Hofland says in conversation. with the AD.
Hofland is held responsible by the management for the bad start of Fortuna’s competition. After eight rounds of play, the team is last in the Eredivisie ranking with only three points (three draws).
“Personally, I was still confident that with Fortuna we would quickly rise again in the rankings. Because how big is the difference with the top of the right-hand row?
Hofland claims that the players are sorry that he has to leave. He said at the end of last month after the hopeless defeat against FC Groningen (1-3) that he felt let down by the selection.
“I say like it is, that’s right. But I don’t know if that is the reason that I have to leave now. In that particular interview I let my emotions go. Purely because I was so upset about that defeat. Perhaps that is not the case. you can. “
“Well fine. What is certain: my players did understand my anger. They were just as angry themselves. The past few weeks it has been better. Whether the decision of the management is strange? More people think that, yes. That’s right.”
