Bert van Marwijk is to lead Feyenoord for a second time after agreeing a two-year contract following the departure of Erwin Koeman.

Feyenoord comeback
The 55-year-old has been in talks with the Rotterdam club for a fortnight and will be officially presented as Feyenoord's new coach on Monday. He was previously in charge at De Kuip Stadium between 2000 and 2004, leading them to triumph in the 2002 UEFA Cup final. The former Netherlands winger and Fortuna Sittard coach left Feyenoord to take over at BV Borussia Dortmund but was dismissed by the German club in December 2006. Koeman resigned after Feyenoord finished seventh in the Eredivisie and ultimately missed out on a place in Europe next season.
