Netherlands coach Bert van
Marwijk has ruled striker Ruud van Nistelrooy out of this year's
European Championships, the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad
reported on Friday.
"I called him to tell him he will not be part of the squad.
I wanted to inform him in time," the newspaper quoted van
Marwijk as saying.
Van Nistelrooy, 35, said he fully understood van Marwijk's
"He acted very decently," van Nistelrooy said.
