Edgar Davids to stay at Barnetby Jack Kitson / 21 May 2013, 13:50Tweet
Edgar Davids will remain at Barnet following their relegation down to the National Conference. The London club feared that they would lose the football icon after suffering the dreaded drop from the Football League on goal difference last season, however the former Ajax and Juventus star will remain at the helm for their 2013/14 campaign in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
The Bees suffered relegation on the final day of the season after losing 2-0 away to Northampton. Speculation was rife that Davids, who took charge of the club in December, would leave but the Dutch legend has now decided to stay at the club with the aim of inspiring an instant return to League Two.
Bees chairman Tony Kleanthous was understandably thrilled by the news and praised the impact that the 40-year-old has had at the club. Barnet can currently be backed at 14/1 with Betfred to win the Conference title next season, while Forest Green have been installed as the early 4/1 favourites.
