Vitesse Arnhem sack coach Westerhof

ROTTERDAM - Vitesse Arnhem have sacked coach Hans Westerhof after a disappointing first half of the season, the Dutch top-flight club said on their website on Tuesday. The 60-year-old Westerhof, who had spells with Ajax Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven, joined the club in July but became the third coach to be sacked before the winter break after Roda JC Kerkrade's Raymond Atteveld and Utrecht's Wim van Hanegem. Vitesse are 15th in the 18-team league with 15 points from 17 matches, four more then bottom side Volendam.
