De Jong was already absent during Cambuur’s last league match against Vitesse due to health problems. His assistants did the honors. Pascal Bosschaart took his place on the bench.
It is not yet known exactly how long De Jong will be out of circulation. “Until then, I have every confidence in the players and technical staff to continue the line.”
