CEO Eric Gudde gave his reasons behind the recovery, “The capital injection from the Friends of Feyenoord, the sharp reverse to positive operating results and transfers have all three, also in conjunction with each other, led to this result. This is something to be proud of.”

Last summer Feyenoord made more than €30 million from the combined sale of Daryl Janmaat, Stefan de Vrij, Graziano Pelle, and Bruno Martins Indi, but only spent €9 million on bringing in their replacements.
