Former Juventus man Edgar Davids has left his role as head coach of Conference side Barnet by mutual consent, the club have announced.

Davids enjoyed a glittering career, enjoying spells at a host of Europe's elite clubs, including Juventus and Barcelona, but his managerial career has yet to reach the same heights.

The Duthcman had been in the role just over a year, having taken sole charge of the club in December 2012 after the departure of joint head coach Mark Robson.

However, Davids will now be looking for another job after his associatinon with Barnet was brought to an end.

A club statement read: "Everybody associated with the club would like to thank Edgar for his contribution during his time here and for his help in putting together the current
team structure.

"The club would also like to wish Edgar the very best of luck in what we have no doubt will be the
continuation of an illustrious career."

This season has been an interesting one for the former midfield maestro, having given himself the number one shirt at the start of the season, he went on to make nine appearances, being sent off three times.

Having originally joined the club in October 2012, he made a total of 38 appearances for the North London club, earning five red cards.

As well as Juventus and Barcelona, Davids also played for AC Milan, Inter Milan, Tottenham and Ajax, where he won the Champions League in 1995.

With his former Holland teammate Clarence Seedorf having recently taken the reigns at AC Milan, a return to the San Siro could be a possiblity should Davids seek an immediate return to football.

However, having experienced relegation from England's third tier in his only managerial role, it remains unsure as to whether a top club will be willing to give Davids the chance to show he can achieve as much as a manager as he did as a player.
