The Dutch football association has placed three Eredivisie sides on special measures because of their precarious finances. FC Twente, NAC Breda and Excelsior will come under KNVB supervision as will De Graafschap and Fortuna Sittard from the Jupiler league.

The KNVB has taken the action on the basis of the clubs’ half-yearly figures. In total, 11 of the country’s professional clubs are set to be in good financial health, including Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord, and 17 have been classed as ‘adequate’. The five clubs subjected to special measures now have to develop a plan to restore their fortunes within three years.
