After announcing that Julio Velázquez would no longer be Fortuna Sittard’s coach for the next season, the club’s board ran out of time to announce a new commander and the name of Danny Buijs was made official. After an adventure in Belgium, more precisely at KV Mechelen, Danny Buijs is back in the Eredivisie to manage Fortunezen.
Danny Buijs’ contract with Fortuna Sittard is valid for the next two seasons. The coach will have time to assemble the team in his own way. In Belgium, Danny Buijs managed KV Mechelen in just eleven matches, with three wins, two draws and six defeats. He was fired for low performance.

In the Netherlands, he managed only FC Groningen in the Eredivisie. In 136 games, he won 50 against 60 losses and 26 draws. Without achieving good results with the Green-and-White Army, he ended up being fired in his last season at the club.
Even with little experience in the Eredivisie and with not so good jobs, Fortuna Sittard decided to bet on Danny Buijs to try to keep the club in the elite of national football in the next two seasons.
