Ruud Gullit has resigned as coach of Feyenoord, following a meeting with the club’s board.

The Dutch legend was replaced Bert van Marwijk last summer but he has chosen to leave because of what he claims is a lack of support from the board.

Feyenoord finished the Eredivisie season in fourth place but 25 points behind champions PSV Eindhoven. At Sunday’s match – a 6-3 win over Den Haag – fans had chanted that Gullit should “leave with his garbage”.

At a meeting with the board on Monday, Gullit is reported to have quit because he wasunable to receive assurances about a transfer budget for the close-season.

“It is always depressing when trainers leave,” chairman Jorien van den Herik told the club’s official¬†website.

“But things didn’t work out at all like we had hoped. There is insufficient faith in a successful co-operation for the coming season.”
