“We have a very young team the oldest player is 24 and we have introduced at 15-year-old player into the training. I must say this team appears too young to be able to perform at a consistent level.

“I get the impression that around SC Heerenveen there is always talk of the past in terms of the icons of the club such as Foppe De Haan although it would be crazy to not use the knowledge of those people whilst I am at this club “.
