Hesterine Jannetje de Reus (born 6 December 1961) is a Dutch former soccer player who most recently worked as the head coach of the Australia women's national football team.
Between 1983 and 1992 de Reus gained 43 caps as a player for the Netherlands women's national football team. In 1994 she began working for the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) as a coach. In 2007, she became the coach for the Dutch national under-19 team. On 1 October 2010 she took up an appointment as technical director and coach of the Jordan women's national football team, who won the following month's 2010 Arabia Cup. In April 2011, three Jordanian players refused to play for de Reus's team because they suspected she was a lesbian.
On June 4, 2012 PSV Eindhoven unveiled de Reus as the new women's coach for season 2012–13, the first season for PSV in the women's BeNe League. PSV entered into a partnership with FC Eindhoven and played as PSV/FC Eindhoven. In early 2013 she left Eindhoven to coach the Australia women's national football team.
De Reus was sacked by Football Federation Australia in April 2014, after a player mutiny brought about by her outspoken personality and demanding coaching methods.
