Leroy Fer doesnt want to go too deep into the rumors surrounding his teammate Steven Berghuis. The Feyenoord captain is explicitly linked to archrival Ajax.
Team mate Tyrell Malacia kept his jaws on each other after the practice match against AA Gent and Fer also refrains from commenting. “Whether Im shocked by the news? Well, its something Im not about,” he tells ESPN. “I dont focus on that: its something were not doing.”
Fer has not been in touch with his teammate about a possible Ajax move and does not want to discuss whether he would understand it. “Its up to the clubs and Steven. But I havent talked to him, so I dont answer that.” If Fer sees Berghuis already, its on TV, with the Dutch team. “Yes nice, I think theyre doing very well. And now in the eighth finals. Hopefully they do as well as in the pool. Tomorrow (Sunday, Netherlands-Czech Republic starts at 6 p.m., ed.) Ill sit back for it again. The last match I was wearing an orange suit, maybe now an orange shirt, haha.”
