Robert Eenhoorn is leaving AZ, the club communicates through official channels. The general manager will resign from the Alkmaarders on July 1. Eenhoorn worked in that position at AZ for ten years. The reason for his departure is fatigue.

“I noticed a certain metal fatigue setting in. A club like AZ deserves full commitment and that energy turned out to be increasingly difficult for me to find,” Eenhoorn explains the choice for his dismissal.

In the coming period, Eenhoorn will help AZ to identify a possible successor and prepare him for the job. After former head coach Pascal Jansen, Eenhoorn is the second prominent figure to leave in a short time.

“I have worked with great pleasure and energy at and for AZ in recent years,” Eenhoorn is quoted as saying. He is proud of the sporting and financial health of the club.

“AZ has been at the top of the Eredivisie for years and has also left an excellent impression in a European context. I am particularly proud of the way our youth present themselves, not least because this represents a stable future for the club in means in the coming years.”

Unicorn remains unclear what he will focus on in the near future. “There is no insight yet into what I will do next and to avoid all speculation, there is no next step in sight yet.”

AZ is currently experiencing an eventful period. Jansen was released after winning the cup match with Quick Boys (3-3, wns). Interim coach Maarten Martens was appointed, but has not yet managed to pull the team out of the doldrums. All five matches under his leadership were not won (three draws, two losses).
