Vitesse Arnhem fires Hans Westerhof as coach

Vitesse Arnhem fired coach Hans Westerhof on Tuesday with the club fourth last in the Dutch league.
Vitesse general director Paul van der Kraan said faith had been lost in the 60-year-old Westerhof, who had only been in charge since the beginning of the season and with his team 15th in the 18-team Eredivisie.
"It's a shame but in our evaluation we realized there is no basis to continue with Hans," Van der Kraan said on Vitesse's Web site.
Westerhof declined to comment. His future had been in doubt since last month when he called his own central defenders substandard after a 1-1 draw with AZ Alkmaar and the comment was picked up by a microphone.
Vitesse did not immediately announce a successor.
