FC Twente announces Joseph Oosting as new coach

It’s been dragging on for days, but today it’s become official. Joseph Oosting will be the new coach of FC Twente from next season. The 51-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Tukkers, with the option of an automatic renewal for a further year.

The final disputes between all parties were resolved on Tuesday and the squads of RKC Waalwijk and FC Twente have already been informed of this change. Joseph Oosting will succeed Ron Jans, who will step down as head of the club. He was FC Twente’s priority alongside Peter Bosz.

Joseph Oosting still has a contract lasting two seasons with RKC Waalwijk, given this scenario, FC Twente had to pay an undisclosed amount to get the coach released. It is worth remembering that FC Groningen tried to remove him from RKC Waalwijk in the middle of the season, but Joseph Oosting chose to continue defending the interests of the Waalwijkers.

As Joseph Oosting wants to concentrate on his work at RKC Waalwijk until the end of this season, he will only be officially introduced after the end of this season. With RKC Waalwijk, he is still in the running for a place in the Europese Tickets Eredivisie. In the penultimate round of the Eredivisie, FC Twente will visit RKC Waalwijk at the Mandemakers Stadion. After that, the two teams could face each other in the Europese Tickets Eredivisie for a place in next season’s UEFA Europa Conference League.

The only words he said are recorded in an FC Twente press release.

“I am very proud to be the coach of FC Twente next season. I come from the northeast of the Netherlands and FC Twente is a very well known club there. It’s a team that has a huge fan base and wants to achieve great things in Dutch football. Games played at De Grolsch Veste are always sold out. FC Twente has grown a lot again in recent seasons and the work done by Ron Jans is sensational” said Joseph Oosting.

FC Twente director of football Jan Streuer also commented on the arrival of Joseph Oosting.

“I am very happy with the arrival of Joseph Oosting. He does an excellent job at RKC Waalwijk both this season and last season. In addition to the results, Joseph Oosting managed to build a very strong RKC Waalwijk with very attractive football. As the season progresses, he manages to extract a lot from the players” said Jan Streuer.

Joseph Oosting’s current assistant at RKC Waalwijk, Peter Uneken, is also expected to arrive at De Grolsch Veste alongside the captain.
