He said, “When I first came to Feyenoord I did not have a goal target the most important thing for me was to get in the starting eleven and then if I score between 15 and 20 goals a season I would be satisfied ”

On his first season in Rotterdam, Kramer noted, ”In general I feel that it has gone well. I started well carrying on from where I left at ADO Den Haag then we had a dip in form as a team and lately we are in form again ”.

”Scoring goals remains the same regardless of what club you are at.

”It’s about how your team plays and creates chances for example last season I played from beginning to end in the league and that has not been the case this season.

”We have been in form lately and that means I get more chances and I have to be sharp in order to take them.”

The Dutch press have been hammering home the fact that Michiel Kramer has only scored 3 goals in De Kuip and 10 away from home as they view it as a strange statistic for a striker. Michiel Kramer does not view it that way. ”For me a goal is a goal if that it is in a home match or away match or on grass or AstroTurf for me it does not matter”.
