René Eijkelkamp will be reunited with Fred Rutten and Jefferson Farfán, as he returns to the training pitch as assistant coach. Rutten, head coach of Schalke 04, has added the former PSV player and assistant coach to his backroom staff. Eijkelkamp, who made first team appearance for Gelsenkirchen club between 1997 and 1999, will serve as part-time coach.
One day a week
Along with Fred Rutten, René Eijkelkamp was Guus Hiddink's assistant during the 2004/06 period. He was also assistant coach at FC Twente in the 2006/07 season, when Fred Rutten was in charge. 'Eijkelkamp will train with a number of talented players one day a week', explained manager Andreas Müller. Schalke 04 boss Fred Rutten is delighted Eijkelkamp has joined the coaching staff in Gelsenkirchen. 'I know from experience that René's strength is making individual players better.' One of these players is Jefferson Farfán, who spent four seasons with PSV before he made a move to Schalke 04 during the summer transfer window. Orlando Engelaar also completed a deal with the Gelsenkirchen club, where Youri Mulder also serves as assistant coach.
