FC Cincinnati hires Nijkamp as GM


Struggling MLS expansion side FC Cincinnati on Wednesday hired a Dutch league technical director Gerard Nijkamp as its general manager.

The move to bring aboard Nijkamp from the club PEC Zwolle in the Eredivisie comes just over three weeks after the club fired head coach Alan Koch following a slow start and hired Yoann Damet as the interim head coach.

Nijkamp, who spent seven years at PEC Zwolle, will report to team president Jeff Berding, who was the team’s original GM when the club was founded in 2015. PEC Zwolle finished as high as sixth place in the Eredivisie in 2014-15 and is known for delevoping players through its own system.

FC Cincinnati has won just once in its last 10 matches and at 3-9-2 (11 points), the team sits last in the Eastern Conference in its first season in MLS.
