Heracles Almelo have sacked coach Ruud Brood.

Brood had attracted the ire of the Heracles fans after a dismal run of results, culminating in Saturday´s home defeat at the hands of FC Groningen, which has left them next to bottom in the Eredivisie table.

Chairman Jan Smit said: "I know that it now looks as if the fans decide our policy, but that is not the case at all. We just have not claimed enough points. Our goal is to stay in the Eredivisie without having to go through the play-offs and that is something we can´t achieve if we go on like this."
