Former Dutch national team winger has a rich playing career. He moved from the Dutch Twente to the Scottish Glasgow Rangers, where he played for five years. Other destinations were the Hiroshima, Groningen and Lierse. He started his coaching career in Groningen youth academy. He spent next five years on the position of an assistant of a coach in Arnhem and Ajax Amsterdam. In 2010 he became the first coach of Groningen. Then led De Graafschap. Most recently he worked in Indonesia as technical director of the national representation.
"Pieter Huistra should help the team to restore its recent playing performance. Undertaking this step worked for us well in the past. Back then the coach Adrián Guľa had a specialized consultant Leo van Veen. Martin Ševela remains head coach with all competencies. Despite winning two champion titles he is still a young coach gaining experience. We believe that he will be able to use the presence of coach Huistra for his own further growth. We are counting with coach Norbert Guľa on an important position in the youth of AS Trencin. It is very important for our immediate future. We believe that he will accept one of our offers," commented general manager of AS Róbert Rybníček.
