Feyenoord Play Down Ooijer Rumours

Feyenoord Play Down Ooijer Rumours

Blackburn Rovers defender Andre Ooijer has been linked with a return to Dutch football with Feyenoord, but their coach Bert Van Marwijk has played this down.

The Dutch International, who endured a torrid start to his Rovers career, overcame that hurdle to become a major part of the Rovers defence last season before a broken leg ended his season in January. Since then Ryan Nelsen has returned to fitness and Christopher Samba has been signed (and been superb!), so he has found it difficult to command a regular starting place this term, hence the talk of a return to Holland, where it was alledged that Feyenoord had (or at least would) make and offer for Ooijer, however, although this has not been ruled out, it has been played down.

Van Marwijk told Voetbal International: "We are always looking at ways of strengthening all areas.

"But at this moment we have not got in contact with any player
."

The veteran defender is in the final year of his Rovers contract so it is quite possible that he will move on, if so whether this is in January or next summer only time will tell.

Ooijer was superb last season before his injury, and has been fairly good overall this season when he has had a chance, but personally I feel he is slipping down the order and although he would have been my first choice right-back at the start of the season I can now see why so many disagreed and do feel he will probably leave, if not before his contract runs out, when it does.

on his debut mer... he has been a lot better since then. Witness his persormances as against Spurs and Chelsea this year for proof.

this guy should start for us i know everyone says that emo and bents have a good partnership but defenders are there to defend first and foremost and for me that puts him ahead of emo who i think may have caused the second goal on sunday! plus his experience is invaluable so we have to keep him at the club to bring nolan and others along!

merlin - That was probably the worst debut performance I have ever seen (even worse than that dude that Graeme Souness got suckered into signing when he ws at Southampton!!!)
But as MikeyGamst points out he's been MUCH, MUCH better since, and has looked ever inch the Dutch International that he currently is.

I like Ooijer - he is usually solid and surprises people by having a pop at goal now and again (don't always go in tho!) But we need to keep these players and build a decent squad if we want to finish high up this season. Same goes for people like Roberts

to be fair Durks Emo was prob our best defender on Sunday. Although your right about the 2nd goal.

Hey Merlin - Ooijer had a bad first game - Drogba had a bad first season!
