AZ Alkmaar coach Louis van Gaal has admitted relegation is a possibility after Sunday´s 5-2 defeat at NEC Nijmegen.

Van Gaal had talked up chances of a title challenge earlier this season following last year´s third-place finish, but the heavy defeat in Nijmegen has now left AZ just 10 points clear of the automatic relegation place.

The former Holland and Ajax boss told De Telegraaf: "Relegation may be unlikely, but it is a mathematical possibility. You must never close your eyes to it."
