NEW BOY GETS FIGO INVITE

The ink on his contract is scarcely dry, but Feyenoord’s newest acquisition Maikel Aerts has already been attracting interest in the very best circles.The keeper has been invited to join the Allstars'04 squad picked by Portuguese talisman Luis Figo to take on a Portugal eleven in a special charity match. The event is an initiative of the Luis Figo Foundation, an organisation set up to help the stars of the future. Alongside Galactico Figo, Aerts will be rubbing shoulders with sporting giants like Michael Ballack and Michael Schumacher.

Aerts was understandably delighted with the invitation. ‘The match organisers asked my agent John Linse whether he knew another keeper that could play. He put my name forward. Then I received a letter from Luis Figo out of the blue inviting me. It’s fabulous of course. I’m very curious to know what I can expect,’ admitted Aerts. ‘I haven’t been back in training long, so first I wanted to be sure I was ready for it physically. But I will be. At least, I suppose a game like that won’t be played at Champions League speed. And anyway, it’s a unique chance I just couldn’t turn down.’
