VAN MARWIJK: ‘GÉRARD IS A WINNER’

Bert van Marwijk is visibly pleased with the signing of Gérard de Nooijer. ‘Gérard can play in the middle or on the left of defence. He’s someone who has proven that he’s a real winner, with an over-my-dead-body mentality. That’s a very important quality.’ Long-term injuries to Song and Van Haaren have left Feyenoord in a fix in defence, and the arrival of De Nooijer looks to be a good bit of business.

Van Marwijk explained Friday’s lightning strike in the transfer market. ‘We had a preference for a Dutchman and Gérard was basically the best option. He hasn’t played a great deal these few months, but his qualities are no secret.’ De Nooijer comes straight into the squad for Saturday training, but Van Marwijk feels the new man might have to sit out Sunday’s game. ‘It might be too early, considering he hasn’t played for so long. But Gérard will train on Saturday and we do intend to include him in the squad on Sunday.’
