Luhukay reveals: “Ideally, I would have started this summer, as the deal was”

Jos Luhukay will make his trainers debut in the Dutch fields a few months earlier than expected. The 57-year-old Venlonaar was presented Wednesday morning by VVV-Venlo, as a successor to the dismissed Hans de Koning.
VVV announced a few weeks ago that De Koning would leave at the end of the season: Luhukay would then board. Ideally, I would have started this summer, as the appointment was, he confirms in conversation with the Algemeen Dagblad. But when the club asked me to start now, I felt I couldn
t refuse. It would be cowardly of me if I hadnt gotten into it right now.
Luhukay made a name in Germany as a PhD specialist: he managed to lead 1 FC Köln (as assistant to Huub Stevens), Borussia Mönchengladbach, FC Augsburg and Hertha BSC to the Bundesliga. Now a fight against degradation awaits: Luhukay realizes that the dime can just fall in the wrong direction. I don
t guarantee that were going to stand up. I do give a guarantee that I will do everything I can. And I want that work ethic from my players too.
On Sunday the number fifteen of the Eredivisie plays an away match against number thirteen PEC Zwolle. With eight rounds ahead, the lead on number sixteen Willem II is only one point.
