SYDNEY: Experienced Dutchman Gertjan Verbeek says he is relishing the challenge of working in Australia’s A-League after being appointed head coach of Adelaide United. The 56-year-old brings a wealth of experience, having coached at the highest level in Germany and the Netherlands, including at Feyenoord and FC Nurnberg, with his most recent stint with FC Twente. Verbeek replaces Marco Kurz who left after two seasons, with the German increasingly at loggerheads with the Adelaide hierarchy over a perceived lack of funding to recruit players. Adelaide finished fourth on the A-League ladder this year. (AFP)
