Beenhakker will not quit

September 29, 2010

Feyenoord technical director Leo Beenhakker insists he will not quit the club and hailed the "incredible quality" of the playing staff.

Feyenoord have had a disappointing start to the season, sitting in 13th place after seven Eredivisie games and having lost their last three league matches.

Rotterdam-born Beenhakker, who has vast coaching experience across the world at club and international level, has declared his loyalty to the cause.

He told Voetbal International: "I have never thought of leaving. I never walk away from problems. Sometimes things may be difficult, but the situation is not so critical that even for a moment have I thought about quitting."

Beenhakker also gave his support to head coach Mario Been and the club's collection of young players.

"When I see these guys train, I see incredible quality. I just feel that a turnaround is going to come. We all know what this club lacks and needs, I keep them working.

"At present what you see is not good, but unrest is not helpful for anyone. Feyenoord should get out of trouble and I will do my best for the club and do everything possible to help."
