BIG MATCH OUT OF KEES’S REACH

Kees van Wonderen will be missing when Feyenoord take on Ajax Sunday. The defender has lost his fight for fitness ahead of the game, which would have been his last – Van Wonderen retires at season’s end. ‘And that’s a pity. They are the greatest games of the season. The tension, the rivalry and the emotion of the supporters is really tangible during these matches and make the ‘classic’ very special.’

‘I don’t mind the rivalry at all, it’s what makes these games so special. Every team has its sporting rival. There are emotionally charged derbies in every village or town, every country has its special rival. And still I have an uncomfortable feeling with Feyenoord- Ajax. I think the rivalry is often unhealthy, the intimidating hate is tangible. Sometimes it feels like it’s not just about football. It’s always great to beat your big sporting rival, but sometimes we forget it’s about football.’
