Jan de Jonge (born 8 May 1963 in Emmen, Drenthe) is a retired football striker and is currently working as the assistant manager of VfL Bochum.[1] As a player, he served three clubs in the Netherlands: FC Groningen, SC Heerenveen and FC Emmen.

Managerial career[edit]

He was manager of FC Emmen, De Graafschap[2] and he also served as assistant and interim manager of Dutch Eredivisie football club SC Heerenveen, after the dismissal of Trond Sollied during the early weeks of the 2009–10 season. In June 2013 he was appointed by Heracles.[3]

He was sacked by Heracles on 31 August 2014 after the club lost its first four Eredivisie matches of the 2014-15 season.[4]
