‘The confidence is back,’ said a satisfied Feyenoord head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst on Friday afternoon, two days ...
Monday morning saw Feyenoord sign an agreement with construction company Berghege on the construction of the new training complex for the first-team squad. The first training session at the complex, which is to be built on a site that formerly belonged to amateur club VV Hillesluis, is scheduled for the start of the 2018-2019 season.
The agreement was signed in the Boardroom at De Kuip by general director Eric Gudde, technical director Martin van Geel and Henk Berghege, director/owner of Berghege.
For Gudde the construction of the new training complex is an important step in the club’s ambitions to establish a top sports environment. ‘A long-cherished wish of ours is being realised,’ said the general director. ‘Berghege came best out of the contract process; we are confident that they will put our final design for the complex into practice wonderfully well. The facilities are expected to be an exceptionally attractive place for players to train.’
