Ruud Van Nistelrooy displayed some dance moves after PSV won the KNVB Cup


Retired Dutch legend Ruud Van Nistelrooy showed some moves on the dance floor during a lovely changing room scenes following PSV Eindhoven victory in the KNVB Cup.

Van Nistelrooy was in high spirits and mood after lifting his first major piece of silverware as a manager.

The Real Madrid legend has been the manager of the club since the start of the campaign and is aiming to secure PSV a spot in the UEFA Champions League.

However, for now the 46-year-old is relishing the moment of winning silverware after leading his team to a penalty shootout victory.

Ruud Van Nistelrooy was so ecstatic he even started cutting shapes in the PSV dressing room in a video the Dutch club shared on their Twitter handle.

The winning players began the celebration as they danced along to some music after the Dutch Cup final victory.

The PSV Eindhoven players then got into vociferous cheers as their coach appears and starts shyly dancing in the middle of the circle.

Van Nistelrooy then caught the electric feeling as he left his conservative arm movements and began throwing his hands into the air as his players continued to urge him on.

The former Manchester United forward can’t keep being impassive as PSV stars, alongside former Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt, smiled along with him.

Fans were happy to see Ruud Van Nistelrooy let his hair down.

A fan stated: “Love the connection between coach and players.”

Another fan said: “Gooo onn Ruud.”

And one fan joked that they hoped that Van Nistelrooy’s ex-team-mate at Manchester United, the famous poker-faced Roy Keane, does not see the video.

Ajax Amsterdam players Brian Brobbey, Jurrien Timber, and Edson Alvarez missed their penalties which gave room for PSV Eindhoven’s to come out victorious via a Fabio Silva clinically slotted penalty which ended the shootout 3-2.

PSV also have the advantage over Ajax Amsterdam in the Eredivisie and they have amassed three points more than their rivals in the final Champions League position with just four games remaining.

Speaking concerning his appointment, Van Nistelrooy said: “I’ve been working towards this moment for years.

“I am proud and confident that I am ready to take on a leadership role at my club. My goal has always been to be the head coach at PSV.

He added: “In recent years I have been intensively supervised by the club and in particular by Toon Gerbrands current general manager of PSV.

“I was convinced that I could fully direct my own coaching career and that required an extra season of experience as a trainer of Jong PSV.

“During the past month, several things came together. The appointment of Marcel Brands as General Manager of PSV and the conversation I had with him gave me the last push to now take this step with full conviction.”
