The farewell of Carlo de Leeuw at Feyenoord, Thursday evening around the cup match against SC Heerenveen, impressed the men of Veronica Inside.
René van der Gijp played with De Leeuw in the youth academy of Feyenoord. “It was a loaded game, you could see that. I played with him at Feyenoord, in the B1. That boy could play football well, was a crazy fun guy,” says the analyst.
“When I went to Sparta later, I still ran into him in the city. An insanely nice boy. You saw yesterday that it had hacked quite a bit there. I did not expect Feyenoord to play so well the first twenty minutes. ”
“You rarely see such a tribute,” adds table-mate Wim Kieft. “Of course more people die close to such a group of players. But it was not normal. Everyone was affected.”
