René van der Gijp has Monday evening Inside today lashed out at Rafael van der Vaart. The former midfielder of Ajax added a day earlier Studio Sport the eyebrows are raised by stating that no player from Feyenoord will reach the world top and the Rotterdam success is mainly a credit to Arne Slot.
Van der Vaart also advised national coach Ronald Koeman to only set up Mats Wieffer against Gibraltar. “Certainly not against France. I think he is a good player, but I also saw a few moments today where he just lacked the speed of action that is needed at the absolute top level. He is a good player, absolutely, but I doubt whether he will can handle the absolute top level. I think that of all of Feyenoord. That is why it is so great what Slot does with this team.”
Van der Gijp watched Van der Vaart’s account with growing amazement. “So I was watching Studio Voetbal yesterday. It wasn’t about anything at all. Such a Van der Vaart. In itself it is nice if you are for Ajax, that is very funny. But he just had a taste for that Feyenoord had won against Ajax. As an analyst that is of course not possible”, he complained.
“Actually, he more or less said that Feyenoord is a shit team, but it has a very good trainer. That is of course not true. And if he then says that Slot is the only trainer in Europe who has that left back (Quilindschy Hartman, ed. ) had taken out… everyone would have done that, right?” Van der Gijp concluded.
