Fenerbahce have appointed Dick Advocaat as their new head coach after parting ways with Vitor Pereira on Monday.

The Istanbul side gave Pereira the sack after accusing the 48-year-old of going against pre-determined plans for the first team and of saying “negative things” about the club and immediately turned their attention to Advocaat.

The 68-year-old had only recently been named one of Netherlands coach Danny Blind’s assistants, but handed in his resignation when Fener came calling.

“I really look forward to working at such a big club in Turkey,” Advocaat told NOS ahead of his appointment.

“Even at my age, this is a wonderful challenge.”

Advocaat will be unveiled as Fenerbahce boss on Wednesday, and make his bow 24 hours later when they take on Grasshopper in the Europa League.
