After the sixteenth, seventeenth, fourteenth and eleventh place in the final ranking, FC Den Bosch is the leader in the first division this season thanks to the financial impulses.
FC Twente is the number four in the first division after 17 games and collected four points less than FC Den Bosch.
At FC Twente, Van der Kraan is reunited with technical director Ted van Leeuwen and head coach Marino Pusic, with whom he also collaborated at Vitesse.
This brings to an end the interim period of the current director Edward van der Veen. Van der Veen, who is the much-discussed director Erik Velderman in August, leaves the club at the end of December.
