Dutchman John van den Brom will take charge of Anderlecht next season, the Belgian champions have announced.

Van den Brom, 45, was capped twice by the Netherlands in his playing days and led Vitesse Arnhem to UEFA Europa League qualification from the Dutch top flight in the season just finished.

Before that, he coached Ajax's reserves, second-tier club AGOVV Apeldoorn and ADO Den Haag.

Previous coach Ariel Jacobs decided to step down despite leading Anderlecht to a record 31st Belgian title in 2011/12.
