Robert René Alberts (born 14 November 1954) is a former Dutch footballer and current manager.

Playing career[edit]

Alberts played for Ajax third team[1] and had stints at French outfit Clermont Foot and in the NASL with Vancouver Whitecaps.[2] He finished his career in the Swedish league.

Managerial career[edit]

Alberts started his coaching career in Sweden, then moved to Malaysia where he won the league and Malaysia Cup titles with Kedah FA in 1993. He also has coached in Singapore with Tanjong Pagar and Home United, winning the S.League title with Home United in 1999. Later he coached the youth teams of South Korea and Malaysia.

He managed the Indonesian champion Arema Malang in 2009-10.[3] He became the first foreign manager to win the Indonesian championship title in first season.

Alberts took over as manager and head coach of Sarawak FA for the second time in 2011.[4] He had managed the team before in 2008–2009 before going to Indonesia. He held the post until his contract with Sarawak was mutually terminated in 2015, due to poor performances of the team in 2015 Malaysia Super League.[5][6] During his stay in Sarawak, the team won the Premier League in 2013 and were runners-up in 2011, on both times winning promotion to the Super League. Sarawak also reached the semi-finals of Malaysia Cup in 2013 with Alberts at the helm.
