Managerial careerEdit

After retiring as a player, Brom managed Vitesse Arnhem from 1969 to 1972, Fortuna SC from 1972 to 1976,[2][3] Sparta Rotterdam from 1976 to 1978,[4] Ajax from 1978 to 1979,[5][6] RWD Molenbeek from 1981 to 1982,[7] and FC Zwolle from 1982 to 1984.

He was dismissed by Ajax's new chairman Ton Harmsen in 1979 after allegedly taking payments and gifts (a horse and the meat of a whole pig), meant for the players, from an amateur side who played Ajax in pre-season.[8]
