Friends (Sparta): “You definitely express it and Im actually going along with that”

The storm on Het Kasteel has been lying down for the time being, but Sparta is still not out of trouble. In the week in which technical director Henk van Stee quit, the Rotterdammers have ended up under the relegation stride of the Eredivisie: Bart Vriends hopes that a successor will soon be available for Van Stee.
Sparta played 0-0 against sc Heerenveen on Saturday, but dropped from place sixteen to seventeen place later in the evening, because competitor Fortuna Sittard won at PEC Zwolle. Friends agrees that Sparta needs reinforcement, with a relegation battle on the way. I hope they put all the sand aside behind the scenes and go to jail quickly. Because we need someone who will call now and try to strengthen the selection, that would be welcome, said the central defender in conversation with ESPN.
Trainer Henk Fraser was already hammering on the need for incoming transfers at the end of August, which, however, remained out. In January, the still to be appointed successor to Van Stee — the name of RKC Waalwijk director Mohammed Allach has already fallen — will have a retake. Whether it‘s pure necessity? You firmly express it and I’m actually going to go with that. It would be very good for us to get a bit of quality, says Vriends, who mainly refers to offensive reinforcement. Today (Saturday, ed.) we are also like a house, but a lack of goals is really going to break you up in the long run.
