Ron Vlaar considers that Feyenoord has big chance to be crowned champions at the end of the season.
“If I have to choose who will become champion, I tend to opt for Feyenoord. Also because I hope that of course,” said the defender who was transfered last summer from Rotterdam club to Aston Villa.
“I enjoy how things at going with Feyenoord. I watched with my father the match against NEC and the clash was so compelling.” “That’s not for nothing. There’s just good developments going on.”
Because of the good performance of Feyenoord, footballer like Stefan de Vrij and Bruno Martins Indi sparked interest of the big clubs. Vlaar said: “This is a logical consequence. Those guys must decide for themselves what they want to do.”
Feyenoord seems to be financially stable and not forced to sell players. “That makes a difference too. If they get to the Champions League, there will be also an instant hit of money”, added Vlaar.
Vlaar does not mind that he left Feyenoord which fights for the title and wen to Villa which struggles to avoid relegation. “It is no surprise to me that they try to win the championship. There is a feeling created inside the team that they can do it. Fortunately, also at Villa things go a bit better. I do not regret my departure.”
The number seventeen of the Premier League won successive matches against competitors from Reading and Queens Park Rangers. “Those games brought us six-points. Very important victories.”
It was long uncertain whether Vlaar would be selected for Netherlands’ World Cup qualifying matches with Estonia (Friday) and Romania (Tuesday). He had long suffered from a calf injury.
“I am very happy that I’m there, fortunately that injury did not last too long. It is always good to be back in Orange. We will certainly enjoy beautiful days.”
