Sef Vergoossen
PSV Eindhoven

Sef Vergoossen (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈsɛf ˈfɛr.ɣoʊ̯.sə(n)], born 5 August 1947 in Echt) is a former Dutch football manager.


Vergoossen began his managerial career in 1978 with VVV-Venlo, managing the club for 12 years until 1989, after which he managed MVV for nine years and Roda JC for three years. Subsequently, he managed Belgian giants Racing Genk between 2001 and 2004, winning the Manager of the Year award at the Belgian professional football awards in 2001–02.

In 2006, Vergoosen moved to Japan and managed Nagoya Grampus Eight, which had previously been successfully managed by current Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger. In 2008, Vergoossen was appointed interim manager of PSV Eindhoven in January 2008, whom he led to winning the 2007–08 Eredivisie title. After his successful tenure at PSV ended, Vergoossen moved on to work for his previous club Genk as an advisor on a part-time basis. In January 2009, after his successor Huub Stevens resigned at PSV, Vergoosen was named as one of the top candidates for the managerial role, having successfully led the side to the Eredivisie title the previous season.[1][2]
