‘The confidence is back,’ said a satisfied Feyenoord head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst on Friday afternoon, two days ...
It looks like a number of players will be leaving Feyenoord ahead of the 2005/6 season. Gerson Magrão is expected to be loaned out to give the Brazilian a chance to gain some experience and the talented midfielder has already attracted interest from home and abroad. The futures of Patrick Paauwe, Chris Gyan and Anthony Lurling will also be sorted out as soon as possible.
Gyan has just recovered from meniscus surgery and he admitted to technical director Mark Wotte Wednesday that he would like more first-team football. Wotte has assured the Ghanaian that Feyenoord will not stand in his way if another club comes in for him.
Patrick Paauwe and Anthony Lurling have also been told they will be allowed to leave and interest has already been shown in the two.
There will be no more decisions about playing staff until the new coaching team is appointed. Feyenoord hope to be able to announce something within a couple of weeks.
