Cyriel Dessers completed his transfer to Feyenoord on Deadline Day, did not put his enthusiasm under seats or banks and seized to Twitter. His message then went viral, to the surprise of the 2019/2020 Eredivision-top scorer.
Dessers said he was “seriously proud” that he could play for Feyenoord. “See you soon at the corner flag to celebrate a goal. The message was eagerly picked up by Feyenoord fans and gathered over four thousand likes within 24 hours. “Yes, it scared me myself,” he laughs in front of ESPNs camera. “It went viral, I can say. Those reports kept coming in.”

The striker is impressed by his first online introduction to The Legion. “It just makes me immediately notice how big this club is. And that does me a lot of fun too. I look forward to showing it here.”
Dessers will be rented until the end of the season from KRC Genk, which took over from Heracles Almelo in 2020. The Belgians reported that Feyenoord had stipulated an option to buy.
