Ruud van Nistelrooy has stepped down as PSV manager after accusing the club of failing to support him.
The former Manchester United striker began his coaching career with PSV’s youth team and was brought in as head coach of the club’s first team last summer.
Van Nistelrooy’s assistant, Fred Rutten, will take temporary charge of PSV.
A PSV statement said: “Head coach Ruud van Nistelrooy announced on Wednesday morning that he would be leaving PSV.
“Following several discussions regarding internal matters that have taken place in recent weeks, a meeting took place on Tuesday evening between the Board of Directors and Van Nistelrooy. To focus on next Sunday’s match against AZ and to continue talking after the season.” The decision was taken.
In his first season in charge, Van Nistelrooy’s PSV defeated Ajax in the finals of the Dutch Cup and Dutch Super Cup.
PSV are in line to finish second in the Eredivisie this season.
