Ruud van Nistelrooy set for first managerial role with PSV Eindhoven
Van Nistelrooy is currently in charge of Jong PSV
Former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy is reportedly being lined up as PSV Eindhoven's next manager.
The Dutchman is currently in charge of Jong PSV - the club's reserve side - having previously coached the Under 18 side for three years.
The 45-year-old, who has also worked as an assistant coach with the Netherlands national side, has never held a senior managerial role.
Van Nistelrooy tipped to replace outgoing PSV Eindhoven manager Schmidt.

The ED's report adds that should Van Nistelrooy take the job at PSV, the club he played for before his move to Manchester United in 20021, he would be assisted by a more experienced coach.
PSV currently sit two points behind Eredivisie league-leaders Ajax in the table, having accumulated 21 victories from their opening 27 matches.
The Dutch side will face-off against Leicester City in the quarter-final of the Europa Conference League next month.
