Abu Dhabi: Al Jazira released a statement on Thursday accepting coach Henk ten Cate’s decision not to renew his contract and thanked him for his efforts. The Dutchman led the club to the 2016 President’s Cup and 2016/17 Arabian Gulf League before finishing fourth in last year’s Fifa Club World Cup, which was the best ever finish by a UAE side. The statement wished him well and said he would always be a distinguished member of Al Jazira’s family thanks to upholding the club’s values on and off the pitch. Al Jazira finished seventh in the league this season and were knocked out in the Last 16 of the Asian Champions League this week.
