Peter Bosz believes Vitesse’s future is bright as he prepares to push them on from their fourth-placed Eredivisie finish last season.
The 49-year-old signed a two-year deal to replace Fred Rutten at the Gelredome on Thursday and is targeting further improvements at the club following their highest league placing in 13 years.
Under Rutten, Vitesse finished fourth in the league, earning them a UEFA Europa League spot next season, and Bosz is determined to maintain their good form both domestically and in Europe.
Bosz joins the club having guided Heracles to 12th place in the league last term, but the lure of a European campaign was enough to convince him to join the club he represented as a player, bringing his assistant Hendrie Kruzen with him to move the club forward.
The futures of key pair Wilfried Bony
and Marco van Ginkel remain unclear and Bosz will be hoping to tie both players down to the club by convincing them of that the ambitions of the club can match their own.
“Vitesse and I are both ambitious,” he said. “I am extremely proud that I have been asked by Vitesse.
“The conditions here are great.
“It is not yet clear which players will come and go, so it is not realistic to set a goal for the season. It is important that the team and individual players get better.”
