Gakpo's Leeds, Man Utd transfer collapse could lead to PSV sacking

Cody Gakpo’s on-off move from PSV Eindhoven could cost technical director John de Jong.

Soccer Niuews says De Jong’s position is no longer safe and could be gone to bring in PSV’s ‘dream successor’ Frank Arnesen who left fellow Eredivisie club Feyenoord last week.

PSV’s sporting progress is reportedly ‘stagnating’ with De Jong in charge which is being attributed to the technical director who is ‘surprised at the speed’ of the decision to sack him.

Gakpo is at the centre of the situation after he came close to joining Leeds and Manchester United over the summer.

If Arnesen does land the job at PSV, he’ll have a wealth of experience to draw on, with the Dane having been the technical director at the club from 1994 to 2004, where he then joined Tottenham before leaving for Chelsea where he stayed until 2010.
