Gertjan Verbeek (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɣɛrcɑn vərˈbeːk], born 1 August 1962) is a retired Dutch footballer who is currently managing VfL Bochum.

Coaching career[edit]

Netherlands[edit]

After retiring from his playing career in 1994, Verbeek stayed with SC Heerenveen as an assistant-coach. He left for Heracles Almelo in 2001, and after a successful stint there was hired as the successor to Foppe de Haan with SC Heerenveen. In 2008, he was hired by Feyenoord, but was fired after clashing with players a few months into his tenure.[1] He moved to Heracles Almelo for the 2009–2010 season, and after guiding them to a 6th-place finish in the Eredivisie, AZ hired him for the 2010–2011 season. Verbeek caused controversy in December 2011 in a 2011–12 KNVB Cup match against Ajax by leading AZ off the pitch in protest at having their goalkeeper Esteban Alvarado sent off for retaliating against a pitch invader.[2] The game was consequently abandoned. On 29 September 2013 AZ fired him due to lack of chemistry with the players.[3]

Germany[edit]

The German football club 1. FC Nürnberg hired him on 22 October 2013,[4] giving him the first coaching opportunity outside of Netherlands, with a contract until 30 June 2015.[5] However, he was sacked on 23 April 2014.[6] On 22 December 2014 the VfL Bochum announced signing Verbeek as head coach, starting 1 January 2015.[7] In his return to Nuremberg on 23 March 2015, Bochum defeated 1. FC Nürnberg 2–1.[8]
