‘An experienced attacker who’s able to hold his own up front,’ is how technical director Frank Arnesen describes Dessers. ‘Cyriel is a proven goal scorer and we are completely confident he will also do that at Feyenoord. His arrival also means that we have more options to choose from up front and, given our busy fixture list, that’s no extravagance.’
Dessers began his career in his homeland Belgium at Oud-Heverlee Leuven. He went on to play for Sporting Lokeren before moving to the Netherlands, where he represented NAC Breda, FC Utrecht and Heracles. He joined KRC Genk in the summer of 2020.
Cyriel Dessers joins the Feyenoord first-team squad with immediate effect.
