GIOVANNI VAN BRONCKHORST RETURNING TO FEYENOORD

Barcelona’s Giovanni van Bronckhorst has agreed to rejoin Feyenoord on a three-year deal. The 32-year-old international makes the switch from Camp Nou to De Kuip with immediate effect. Van Bronckhorst’s return to Feyenoord is the fulfilment of a long-held dream the player has had to play for his hometown club again. The Rotterdammer will be presented to the press at De Kuip Wednesday afternoon at 14.30.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst came through the ranks at Feyenoord’s Varkenoord youth complex, making his first team debut in 1994. Despite his tender age, the left back was one of the club’s most important players for four seasons, and a big hit with the fans. He left Feyenoord in 1998 after 141 official appearances, with a Dutch cup medal on his mantelpiece. With his new club Glasgow Rangers he won two Scottish titles, before moving south to Arsenal, where he won an English Premier league winner’s medal. In August 2003 he joined FC Barcelona and in Spain he realised his full potential, becoming one of Europe’s leading players. Two Spanish titles and a Champions league triumph (2006) with Barça were added to Van Bronckhorst’s role of honour, which also includes 67 international caps. He has scored four times for his country.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is Feyenoord’s fourth close-season signing after Luigi Bruins, Andwélé Slory and Tim De Cler. He will wear the number eight shirt.
