Ruud Van Nistelrooy has resigned as manager of PSV Eindhoven ahead of their final game of the season, the Dutch club have announced.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker had been in charge for just one year at the Philips Stadion and won the Dutch Cup earlier this month.
PSV will secure a second-place finish in the Eredivisie if they take a point from their last game at AZ Alkmaar on Sunday.
Hoofdtrainer Ruud van Nistelrooij heeft vanmorgen bekend gemaakt te vertrekken bij PSV.
PSV betreurt zijn besluit en is hem dankbaar voor het winnen van de Johan Cruijff Schaal en de TOTO KNVB Beker en hoopt het seizoen af te sluiten met het behalen van de tweede plaats.

A statement from the club on Wednesday said Van Nistelrooy, 46, did not feel he had sufficient support following several recent discussions about “internal affairs”.
The club wanted him to see out of the season but he has opted to leave immediately. Fred Rutten will take charge for the trip to Alkmaar.
The statement read: “Van Nistelrooy reported this morning that in his opinion there was not enough support within the club to continue longer.
“He immediately explained this to the players and staff.
“PSV regrets Van Nistelrooy’s decision and is grateful to him for winning the Johan Cruyff Shield and the KNVB Cup this season and hopes to close the football year with second place.”
