News from Rotterdam: Sparta brings back old acquaintance Rankovic as assistant

Aleksandar Rankovic will go back to work next season Sparta Rotterdam. The coach, fired earlier this season at Ado den Haag, returns as assistant trainer to Henk Fraser in Rotterdam and succeeds Gérard de Nooijer.

That makes Sparta through official channels known. De Nooijer will leave Sparta after this season and wants to continue his career elsewhere. It is a choice that is respected by the Rotterdam club. He succeeded Rankovic last summer, who then started working at ADO. Now that De Nooijer has decided to leave and Rankovic is without a club, the latter is returning to Rotterdam.

Rankovic was not long at the helm at ADO and was the first Eredivisietrainer this season. He was fired after disappointing performances and replaced by Ruud Brood. ADO’s situation hasn’t gotten much better since Rankovic left. The club from the residence city is in a very disappointing seventeenth place.
