Blackburn's Andre Ooijer has confirmed he will be definitely returning to play for PSV next season. Furthermore he had a special mention for the retiring Tugay, labelling the man a 'legend'.
Andre Ooijer will play his last game in blue and white on Sunday before heading back to Holland after three years service.
Ooijer says he has many positives from his stay here, one in particular is having had Tugay as a team-mate.
Ooijer, speaking to Sky Sports - 'He is a legend, a great guy and a great player,'
'Tugay is one of the best players I have played with. To see what he can do with the ball is amazing. He is one of those special players.'
Ooijer also had comments on his future and what has now become his past.
He continued - 'This is going to be my last match on Sunday as I am going back to PSV. I wanted to keep it a little bit quiet as we were in a relegation battle.
'It has been a difficult decision as I have had three great years at this club. But it is time for me to go home. I am just happy that Blackburn are safe.
'I am sure I have become a better person because it is a big experience to live abroad and play abroad.'
I am sure I won't be the only one wishing Andre all the very best. After a terrible debut he has become a model of consistency and he leaves with our blessing - he wanted to go but he kept it quiet until the relegation job was done, take note please certain traitors (cough Roque cough).
