He left to become RSC Anderlecht manager, where he again reached the Cup Winners' Cup final in 1990, this time losing to Sampdoria in Gothenburg.

In 1993, after his successful stints with KV Mechelen and Anderlecht, he signed as manager of PSV faced with the task with cleaning up an ageing team. In his first season PSV placed third in the league. In his second season, despite some major purchases, he did not perform well. In September 1994, de Mos positioned the centre forward Erik Meijer, known for being able to make good headers, for incomprehensible reasons as a back against Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

Vitesse

Even at these clubs, he did not win any prizes and was employed for only a relatively short time. After working in Spain, Japan and the Middle East Aad de Mos ultimately ended up in Arnhem on the bench at Vitesse. He was signed at the last moment after the club failed to attract the Belgian coach Johan Boskamp, largely because Johan Boskamp did not have the correct Dutch papers and no dispensation was given by the KNVB. After a disappointing first season Vitesse Arnhem ended 12th and in the subsequent play-offs they fought for a place in the Intertoto cup. After successful matches against NAC Breda (3-2 and 0-1 wins) and NEC (1-0 and 0-2 wins), they lost in the final against FC Utrecht on away goals. The 2007/2008 season began with some success. The team won their first three matches which was the best start to a season in the club's history, however the season again ended in failure, finishing in 12th place). On April 28, 2008, the club management announced that the contract with de Mos was dissolved immediately.

Pundit

De Mos was regularly shown on television as a pundit on the former Talpa and the Belgian Sporza. During the World Cup 2006 in Germany Mos was as an analyst for the NIS and the Belgian VT4.

Kavala

Aad de Mos signed a 6-month contract with AO Kavala, with an option to extend it up to January 2010, following the sacking of Vangelis Goutis.[1] Shortly after, he was followed by the signings of Denilson, Ebi Smolarek and Diogo Rincón during the winter transfer period.[2] He found immediate success, most notably the away win at Panathinaikos FC in February, with the Athens club leading the league at the time. His notable results in Greece, despite his short stay at the club, coupled with his trademark managerial style, led popular Dutch magazine Voetbal International to give him the nickname of "Koning van Kavala" (King of Kavala).[3] On April 2, 2010, Aad de Mos resigned from his position as coach, allegedly after disputes with the club owner.

Sparta Rotterdam

On April 2, only one day after his resignation from Kavala, Aad de Mos was named new head coach of Sparta Rotterdam, replacing dismissed boss Frans Adelaar. He arrived at a time when the club was facing relegation with only a one-point advantage over 16th-placed ADO Den Haag. His adventure at Sparta started with little success: a 1–1 home draw to Heracles Almelo was indeed followed by two consecutive losses, with his side being overtaken by ADO Den Haag, forcing the Rotterdam team to take part to the post-season promotion and relegation tournament in order to maintain its place in the Eredivisie. In the first leg of the relegation playoff second round, Sparta were stunned by Eerste Divisie outsiders Helmond Sport, losing the game 2–1; Sparta then managed to get back from that loss by winning 2–0 in a dramatic return leg, thus ensuring them a place in the third and final round, in which they challenged crosstown rivals SBV Excelsior in a two-legged derby for a place in the 2010–11 Eredivisie. Atfer the first leg ended 0–0 at Excelsior's home, Sparta was eliminated in a dramatic return match, with Excelsior missing a penalty, and then Sparta scoring the 1–0 goal in injury time only to suffer a equaliser only seconds later; the game, ended with a 1–1 draw, saw therefore de Mos missing his goal, as Sparta was consequently relegated in the 2010–11 Eerste Divisie.

Personal life

Aad de Mos has a daughter, Tessa (born 1982) who is active as a FIFA-licensed football agent since 2005, and currently works in behalf of several Eredivisie players.[4]
