AZ Alkmaar appoint Dick Advocaat as their new manager until the end of the season.

AZ Alkmaar have appointed Dick Advocaat as their new manager following the dismissal of Gertjan Verbeek last month.

Advocaat, 66, joins AZ for a second time after having five months in charge at the end of the 2009-10 season.

He has signed a contract until the end of the Eredivisie season.

A statement on AZ's website read: "Advocaat brings a wealth of experience to his latest post having previously won major league and cup silverware during spells with PSV Eindhoven, Rangers and Zenit St Petersburg, who he also guided to UEFA Cup glory in 2008."

Verbeek was relieved of his duties because of a supposed breakdown in his relationship with the players.
