Albert Stuivenberg ( [ˈstœy̯və(n)bɛrx]; born 5 August 1970) is a Dutch football coach and former player. Stuivenberg played professionally for SC Telstar and HFC Haarlem, before suffering a serious injury and moving into coaching with Feyenoord, RWD Molenbeek, Al Jazira Club, and the Netherlands under-17 and under-21 national teams. On 1 January 2017, he signed with Belgium club Genk.
Born in Rotterdam, Stuivenberg began his playing career in the academy of his local club, Feyenoord, but was unable to break into the first team and moved to HFC Haarlem. He later joined SC Telstar, but tore cruciate ligaments in 1986, which forced his premature retirement three years later in 1989.
After retiring, Stuivenberg moved into coaching and was educated at the CIOS sports academy in Overveen. In 1992, he was given a job as a youth coach with his former club, Feyenoord, where he later became head of youth in 2001. He spent the 2000–01 season as an assistant first-team coach with Feyenoord's Belgian feeder club, Racing White Daring Molenbeek. After spending 13 years coaching at Feyenoord, working with the likes of Robin van Persie, he moved to the Al Jazira Club in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in 2004 to head their youth system.
After two years in the Middle East, he returned to the Netherlands to take over as the coach of the under-17s national team. He twice led the team to victory in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship, in 2011 and 2012, leading to his promotion to manage the under-21s in 2013. Stuivenberg also scouts for the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) and educates professional coaches at the KNVB Academy.
In July 2014, Stuivenberg was appointed as an assistant coach at Manchester United by new manager Louis van Gaal, working alongside assistant manager Ryan Giggs. On 23 May 2016, two days after winning the 2016 FA Cup it was announced that Louis van Gaal had been relieved of his management duties. As part of his coaching team, it was also announced that Stuivenberg had departed the club.
In January 2017, he started a new coaching job at KRC Genk. He replaced Peter Maes who was sacked because of an unsatisfactory ranking in the Belgian First Division A.Netherlands U17
